MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. Political agreements regarding the Turkish Stream remain, but in order to address the issues on this gas project it is necessary to wait for the results of the elections in Turkey, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
He was speaking at the government hour in the State Duma (lower house of parliament).
"This situation is developing, because the elections are yet to take place in Turkey and in the absence of a permanent government in Turkey there are no persons authorized to sign documents required for the Turkish stream project’s implementation. Political agreements remain and the Turkish president confirmed this on September 23 in Moscow. The Energy Ministry is also receiving confirmations on the level of experts."
"Let's wait for the elections, when the government is formed in Turkey that is authorized to make a decision," he said.
