During the visit in Baku Oettinger will also meet with Energy Minister of Ukraine Yuriy Prodan on September 8.
It is expected that after this meeting date and place of the next treaties upon gas in the format of the EU-Russia-Ukraine will be agreed. Perhaps this meeting will take place in mid-September.
Estimated date of the trilateral meeting has been postponed. Earlier, the Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that Russia and Ukraine are ready to hold a trilateral meeting on gas issues on September 6, but are waiting on the agreement of the European Council.
