EU leaders to urge greater effort to cut gas imports

LONDON (Reuters) - European Union leaders will call for greater efforts to cut reliance on imported gas at a Brussels summit next week, a draft document shows, underlining their concern about strained relations with dominant energy supplier Russia over Ukraine.

Ukraine is a transit route for shipping Russian gas to the EU, which relies on Russia for about a third of its supplies.
