KIEV: Ukraine, Slovakia and representatives of the European Union will continue talks on reverse gas flows on Friday in Kiev, a spokeswoman for Ukrainian energy ministry said.

Ministers said that Ukraine could sign a deal on Monday allowing the shipment of up to 10 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas a year from Slovakia.
