    The deal will be signed after the election, Russian Energy Minister said.

    VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) — Russia's Energy Ministry expects that an intergovernmental deal on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline will be signed after a new government is formed in Turkey, Minister Alexander Novak said Friday.

    "We could continue negotiations and work to finalize the intergovernmental agreement any time, but I think it is unlikely they will be able to do this before the election and the formation of a new government," Novak said on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum.

    Turkey is set to hold a new round of elections on November 1, after the deadline passed for forming a new cabinet following elections in June.
