ANKARA, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Turkey’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yildiz has said Turkey would like to discuss possible discounts for the Russian gas current price at the upcoming talks scheduled for next week.
“The agreement, we signed with the Russian side, offers to us a right to request revision of gas prices. We shall pass the request to Gazprom’s representatives,” Yildiz said on Friday.
Russia was Turkey’s biggest gas supplier, he said.
A source in Russia’s Gazprom giant said the company would not discuss the gas price issue during the visit of its deputy head Alexander Medvedev to Turkey.
The agenda will not be devoted to the global cooperation in the gas sphere. “We have not drafted any documents on prices,” the source said.
During the meeting, the sides may discuss also possible development of the South Stream project, crossing Turkey’s territory.
Turkey is the second biggest importer of the Russian gas after Germany. In 2013, Russia supplied to Turkey 26.61 bcm.
