    Russia has no plans to revive the South Stream gas pipeline project.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow does not intend to return to the South Stream gas pipeline project, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Saturday.

    "To date, there are no decisions or talks on returning to the South Stream, there is a project that we have agreed to implement with our Turkish partners, with which we are moving forward and which we will implement," Novak told RT television network.

    Russia canceled the South Stream project in December 2014, replacing it with a new Black Sea gas pipeline to Turkey, dubbed the Turkish Stream.
