MOSCOW/CHISINAU, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Moldova has paid for
Russian natural gas it received in October and the first half of
November, the Moldovagaz company said in a statement, averting a
possible crisis over a payment dispute.
Moldovagaz said earlier this week that Gazprom had
threatened to cut off gas supplies to the country within 48
hours unless Moldova paid for recent deliveries. Gazprom on
Wednesday agreed to postpone the deadline.
