BRUSSELS, June 1. /TASS/. The European Union has no plans to abandon energy cooperation with Russia, European Commission spokesperson Anna-Kaisa Itkonen said on Monday.
The European Union has never said it will discontinue its partnership with Russia. The EU only wants to ensure energy diversification and is currently working on a comprehensive strategy at political, technical and other levels, the spokesperson said.
When asked about the construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline intended to pump Russian natural gas to Europe via Turkey, the spokesperson said the EU was watching this project but currently had no specific information on its viability and legal aspects.
Russian energy giant Gazprom and Turkey’s Botas signed a memorandum of understanding on December 1, 2014 on building a gas pipeline from Russia to Turkey along the bed of the Black Sea with an annual capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, of which 47 billion cubic meters will be delivered to a new gas hub on the Turkish-Greek border.
Gazprom Russkaya company will be in charge of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline construction.
