Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 13
The implementation of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project does not lose momentum, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, RIA Novosti reported.
The project fully corresponds to the interests of Russia and Turkey, the statement said.
"I can not agree with your opinion that the Turkish Stream is losing momentum,” President Putin said in an interview with the Russian and Turkish media. “Such a large-scale project can not be worked out and agreed at once. Too many legal, technical and economic, technological, organizational issues must be discussed with our Turkish counterparts."
"The main thing is that this project fully meets the interests of Russia and Turkey,” the president said. “In this regards, our views coincide with my Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan."
Currently, Ankara-Moscow talks on the Turkish Stream implementation are frozen.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on November 12 that Russia is ready at any time to continue discussing the intergovernmental agreement on the Turkish Stream with Turkey.
