MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan did not discuss the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project during their telephone conversation on Sunday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Monday.
"The Turkish Stream was not on the agenda of yesterday’s talks," Peskov said adding that the leaders "mostly focused on the situation in the Middle East, Syria, and on IS [Islamic State terrorist organization]."
The Kremlin press service reported earlier that Putin and Erdogan "exchanged opinions on the situation in the Middle East, first of all in Syria and Iraq, in the framework of stepping up multilateral and bilateral coordination with the aim of increasing efficiency of countering threats from the Islamic State." "It was stressed that consolidation of efforts of all interested countries is necessary on the basis of international law to successfully fight the spread of terrorism and extremism," the Kremlin said.
