MOSCOW, November 28 /TASS/. Russian gas deliveries to Turkey will dominate the Russian president’s talks with Turkish leaders on December 1.
“Energy is one of the main themes in the context of our interaction with Turkey. Gas deliveries to Turkey will also be part of the agenda,” Russian president’s aide Yury Ushakov told journalists on Friday.
He said Turkey was the second biggest Russian natural gas buyer after Germany adding that until recently gas had been transported via the “Western corridor” by transit through Ukraine, Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria as well as the Blue Stream gas pipeline. Russia’s gas supplies to Turkey stood at 26.6 billion cubic meters in 2013 compared to 20.7 billion cubic meters in January-September 2014 which is up 7.2 % over the same period last year.
The South Stream construction is another area of Russian-Turkish cooperation.
“The sides have reached all necessary agreements on possible construction of the South Stream gas pipeline,” Ushakov said.
In an interview with Turkey’s Anadolu news agency which Putin gave ahead of his visit to Turkey, the Russian president said the cost of additional Russian gas volumes needed to be finalized.
“The companies concerned should finalize all questions related to the cost of additional /gas/ volumes with account of realities of the Turkish gas market,” Ushakov stressed.
