"The final decision has not been made yet, the negotiations are still going on, but, generally, Serbia is interested [in joining the project]," Terzic told journalists.
Earlier on Friday, the top diplomat said that Serbia is expecting to receive Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak in late April or early May.
Terzic expressed his hope that Serbian Minister Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic and Novak would discuss Serbia’s admission to the Turkish Stream gas project.
The Turkish Stream will replace the South Stream project, which Russian company Gazprom cancelled due to the European Commission’s claims that construction of the pipeline would violate EU anti-monopoly laws.
According to Terzic, the annulment of the South Stream project complicates the situation for Serbia in the field of energy security. Turkish Stream will have a more complicated route and will have to go through Turkey, which might block the pipeline, as well as through Bulgaria and Macedonia.
