ANKARA (Sputnik) – Turkey expects the Turkish Stream gas pipeline will be extended to Serbia, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is in Belgrade, said Tuesday.
“The Turkish Stream is a very important project, now it passes through the Black Sea, then through our territory it will be laid to Europe. We continue to discuss all issues related to it with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin,” Erdogan said.
“Our desire is for the gas to get to Europe as soon as possible, and I believe that Putin is also positively looking at it. I hope that in the near future the gas will reach Serbia, and it will have no problems with gas supply,” he told reporters at a joint press conference with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic, broadcast by the NTV television channel.
