Druzhba pipeline is ready for sale


The Belarusian government is ready to sell the Belarusian section of the Druzhba pipeline, the head of the State Property Committee Heorhy Kuznyatsou said, Interfax news agency reports.

"I think everything lying in ground must work at full capacity. We must have good transit and the state must gain a profit," Kuznyatsou said Tuesday at a press conference in Minsk.

As for the possible sale of the Belarusian section of the Dzruzhba oil pipeline, the State Property Committee head said: "If I were an investor, I would say the pipeline could be sold. Of course, you may write that Kuznyatsou proposes to sell oil pipelines. But I don't propose. On the other hand, everything must have returns. What is sense in dead iron?"
