Russia in talks on Turkish Stream, other energy routes to Europe

Jul 27, 2016 12:00 AM

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that an environment of political trust served as the best guarantee for Russia in selecting energy routes into Europe.

Russia is in talks on the Turkish Stream and other gas pipeline projects with European partners, keeping in mind the feasibility and mutual political trust in its decision-making, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

"Work is underway in different areas… And you know that alternative routes are worked on and being discussed with our European partners," Peskov told reporters answering a question on the possible revival of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project.

He stressed that an environment of political trust served as the best guarantee for Russia in selecting energy routes into Europe.

"It is a matter of viability, an issue of commercial terms and a political climate of trust, which in fact is probably the best guarantee for creating attracting economic conditions. Therefore, the issue is complex, but of course no one is moving away from discussions of this project, and everyone is interested in discussing its feasibility," Peskov said.
