"I think that t is the same as if you are looking for a black cat in a dark room, knowing that there is none. As far as I know, contacts between SOCAR and Gazprom are carried out on a regular basis. The prices and parameters are discussed. Two state-owned companies are looking for optimal profits and this is a normal process. Actually the question is upon volumes of supplies", foreign minister said.
