Previously, Serbia’s president Tomislav Nikolić stated Beograd intended to hold negotiations with its European and Russian partners in order to clarify the situation around the abandonment of the ‘South Stream’ project pipeline. An official representative of Turkey also mentioned the anticipated meeting.
Russia’s Ministry of Energy did not comment on the situation around the speculated multilateral talks.
“There is no information yet on any meetings to discuss gas issues with Turkey in the nearest future,” the official told RIA Novosti.
Earlier today, Turkey’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yıldız said discounts on Russian gas shipments will be further negotiated, having expressed hopes that Russian-Turkish talks resume the next week.
