ANTALYA, November 16. /TASS/. Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak says signing of the agreement on construction of the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline is not a time consuming process.
"It’s difficult to say as this will depend on how fast the text is being nodded through, but I don’t think it’s a time consuming process," Novak said on the sidelines of the G20 summit when answering the question when the agreement of the pipeline’s construction may be signed.
The Minister added that the agreement is unlikely to be signed in December 2015 as the Turkish government hasn’t been formed yet while the country’s Energy Minister may be appointed in late November or early December this year.
