Belarusian gold, forex reserves to IMF standards drop 6.4% in Jan

MINSK. Feb 10 (Interfax) - Belarusian gold and foreign currency reserves, calculated to IMF standards, fell by $427.7 million, or 6.4%, in January 2014 to the equivalent of $6.22 billion on February 1, according to preliminary figures, the National Bank of Belarus told Interfax.

Gold and forex reserves, calculated to national standards, fell by $435.1 million, or 6%, to the equivalent of $6.8 billion.

"The main factor to impact the reduction in gold and foreign currency reserves was the repayment of foreign and domestic foreign currency obligations in full by the government and the National Bank," the National Bank said.

A rise in gold prices on the international market helped keep gold and forex reserves up in January.

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas signals readiness for compromise and praises Russia’s role in settling conflict in Middle East in an exclusive interview with Interfax

Greek Ambassador to Russia Danai-Magdalini Koumanakou has given an interview with Interfax in which she speaks about Russian-Greek interaction following the aggravation of relations between the European Union and Russia, her perception of EU sanctions against Russia and the upcoming high tourist season.

Peter Poptchev is a Bulgarian diplomat and recently served as adviser to the country’s minister of economy and energy. He was part of the Bulgarian negotiating team for both the South Stream and Nabucco intergovernmental agreements (IGAs). In this interview, he tells Interfax that Gazprom’s South Stream project will benefit from the EU’s Third Energy Package (TEP).
