KRAKOW, Poland, May 11 Poland and six former Soviet countries signed
a deal to extend the Odessa-Brody pipeline and send energy supplies
to Europe bypassing Russia.

The presidents of Poland, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Lithuania and Ukraine,
and the Kazakh deputy energy minister, meeting in Krakow, Poland,
Friday, signed a resolution declaring joint energy security planning
as a major policy decision, RIA Novosti reports.

The Odessa-Brody pipeline, which sends mostly Russian oil to the
Black Sea port, will extend to the port of Gdansk in Poland and the
Plock refinery.

The countries will also join forces to send oil and gas from Central
Asia to Central Europe via the Caucuses outside Russia.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko said the energy summit was not
an effort to exclude any other countries but for mutual energy
security.

Ilham Aliyev, the Azeri president, said it showed "the growing role
of regional cooperation." "The energy summit was a great idea," said
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, "a promising start, a first
step." The next regional energy summit will take place in Vilnius,
Lithuania, in October.
