    The South Stream gas pipeline project is able to be revived, Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Nikos Xydakis told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The South Stream gas pipeline project is not completely dead and can be revived,  Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Nikos Xydakis told Sputnik.

    "At the moment, this question [South Stream gas pipeline project] is not on the agenda. However, it is not completely dead. Despite the sanctions, the idea of the implementation of the South Stream gas pipeline has been kept alive. Following this logic, I could say that the South Stream can be revived," Xydakis said.

    The Southern Gas Corridor is backed by the US and European Commission and considered by them as a competitor to the suspended Turkish Stream project.
