Belarus Looks to Import U.S. Oil Supplies via Poland

The Belarusian government is mulling over the possibility of importing American oil into the republic through Poland, and the discussion of this issue will be resumed after the quarantine Poland had imposed on its territory due to coronavirus is lifted, First Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Dmitry Krutoy told reporters on Thursday, TASS reported.

“I think that when quarantine in Poland is lifted, we will start to discuss this topic more intensively,” he said as quoted by the BelTA agency.

Belarus, a close ally of Russia, became involved in a row with Moscow earlier this year over the price it pays for Russian oil. The dispute has since been concluded, but Belarus has said it wants to diversify its oil imports, Reuters added.
