The Belarussian government promised Monday to settle its gas debt with Russia within two weeks after Moscow cut supplies to the country over payment arrears.

"Belarus plans to settle its gas debt with Russia within the next two weeks," First Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Semashko said in a statement, adding that Russia should also pay Belarus 217 million dollars in fees for transiting gas to Europe.
