Lavrov said Moscow hopes for resumption of dialogue with the European Commission on South Stream.
“The Russian Federation would like all countries that signed South Stream agreements to continue participating in the project,” Lavrov said.
He said attempts to “retrospectively use the requirements of the Third Energy Package regarding South Stream are unfair and out of line with international law.
“After additional consultations with Brussels we’ll determine further works,” he said.
Last Thursday, June 5, Serbia announced it had no plans to delay the start of construction, scheduled for July, over the pressure from the EU.
The South Stream project has faced a number of problems since relations between Russia and Europe soured over Ukraine.
Gazprom said it could complete the South Stream pipeline without international funding.
The overall capacity of the marine section of the pipeline will be 63 billion cubic meters per year. It is worth about €8.6 billion.
