    Moscow is not considering gas discounts for Ankara due to new economic conditions, the Russian energy minister said.

    STRELNA (St. Petersburg), (Sputnik) – Russia is not currently considering gas discounts for Turkey, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Tuesday.

    “This issue has not been raised or discussed. You know, the situation is now completely different compared to when it was discussed a few years ago. Firstly, the price dropped significantly and current contract prices are competitive according to the price formula, therefore the question is not on the agenda now,” Novak told the Rossiya 24 broadcaster.
