On 15 November, I discussed Moldova's energy security and the 5 year gas supply deal through Gazprom with Moldovan Prime Minister Gavrilita. The Foreign Secretary has not discussed this bilaterally with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, but we are looking at other ways to support Moldova's energy diversification. We want Europe to be less dependent on Russian gas, and are in favour of more investment in renewables.
