KIEV (Reuters) - Russia and Ukraine did not find a solution to a long-running gas pricing dispute at talks on Saturday but agreed to hold another meeting on Sunday, Ukrainian Energy Minister Yuri Prodan said.
"Each side explained its position today. No solution was found. Therefore, in line with a proposal by (European Energy)Commissioner (Guenther) Oettinger, the talks will continue tomorrow morning," he told reporters in Kiev.
Russia has threatened to cut off gas supplies to Kiev if it does not pay $1.95 billion (1.14899 billion pounds) in gas debts by Monday.
