MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that he is going to hold a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Turkey Binali Yildirim later on Thursday.
"Last week the Turkish minister was here (in Moscow), we discussed the construction of a new gas pipeline under the Black Sea. By the way, I am going to speak to him on the phone," Medvedev said at a cabinet meeting.
He was speaking about the draft law on ratification of agreement between Russia and Turkey on the Turkish Stream pipeline project.
Medvedev reminded that the Turkish parliament had already ratified the law on the signing of this agreement, and the Turkish President had signed it.
"I promised that we would also consider this issue soon. Let's do it today," the head of the Russian government said.
Medvedev noted that the Turkish Stream pipeline project consists of two lines, which will stretch across the bottom of the Black Sea from Russia to the receiving terminal on the coast of Turkey.
The gas pipeline should be commissioned before the end of 2019.
