|Belarus is interested in getting a $2 billion Russian state credit, First Deputy Finance Minister Andrei Kharkovets told Interfax.|
"We are interested in drawing one more Rssian credit - $2 billion," he said.
Kharkovets explained that, "from the point of view of the value of resources, no cheaper credit can be found now. The repayment schedule is especially favorable and effective."
A $1.5 billion Russian credit was drawn in December 2007 on very favorable terms. "It would be wonderful if the new credit were extended on the same terms," Kharkovets said.
