Speaking in an interview with BBC’s Newsnight programme, Gazprom deputy chairman Alexander Medvedev warned that Europe was now at a crossroads.
“Only three countries can supply pipeline gas in the long-term: Russia, Iran, and Qatar. There is no other choice than to deal with these countries,” he said.
“Europe should decide how to handle this situation. If Europe does not need our gas, then we will find a way of selling it elsewhere,” the Gazprom executive said.
