    Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan plans to discuss the Syrian civil war and the joint Turkish Stream gas pipeline project during his one-day visit to Moscow on Wednesday.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) — Erdogan arrived in Russia earlier today to attend the opening of Europe's largest mosque in central Moscow, alongside Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

    "Syria will be the primary topic of talks with the Russian president… The agreement on the Turkish Stream was reached during Putin's visit to Ankara [in December 2014], but there are some outstanding issues that will be discussed," Erdogan told Kanal 7 and Ulke TV television channels Wednesday as he left for Moscow.

    The Turkish Stream is a proposed pipeline with an annual capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, running from Russia to Turkey beneath the Black Sea. The pipeline is expected to continue to a hub on the Turkish-Greek border, from where it can be extended to southern Europe.
