“No, there has not been [an agreement]. Putin said himself at a press conference that nobody asked for assistance.”
“Of course, the issue of energy cooperation was raised. Naturally, at the end of high-level talks, we agreed that all matters regarding cooperation in the energy sector will be examined on the expert level, but Russia has not promised financial assistance because no one has asked,” Peskov said in an interview with the Business FM radio channel.
Russia and Turkey signed a memorandum of understanding on the construction of a gas pipeline in December 2014.
The so-called Turkish Stream is set to have an annual capacity of 63 billion cubic meters of gas. Around 14 billion cubic meters of gas will be supplied to Turkey, with the rest being pumped to a hub on the Turkish-Greece border for customers in Europe.
