Gas Exports to Resume

MOSCOW () -- Uzbekistan will boost natural gas exports to Kazakhstan under a new agreement signed Monday in Tashkent, Interfax reported.

Uzbekistan had cut gas supplies because of Kazakhstan's failure to pay a $26 million gas debt from 1995. News reports last week said some residents of Almaty, the Kazakh capital, were boiling water on outdoor fires because of a lack of gas.
