(ForUm) - State-run enterprise Ukrinterenerho may stop the delivery of electricity to state-run concern Belenerho in 2007, Rynok.biz reported.

"As far as I know, Ukraine may stop exports to Belarus from January 1 if Belenerho disagrees with electricity price rise," said Ukrainian News source at Ukrinterenerho.

According to the source, Ukrinterenerho contacted Belenerho in November with a warning letter, reports Trend.

The parties have not yet reached agreement on the volumes and price parameters of electricity exports in 2007.

Earlier the Economy Ministry recommended that Ukrinterenerho increase the cost of the electricity exported to Belarus.
