Upcoming discussions between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project may give impetus to implementing this and other energy projects, Turkish Ambassador to Russia Umit Yardim said Friday.



“At the moment, the parties have not started the formal part, the signing of documents. I do not know in what context the Turkish Stream will be discussed on August 9, but of course energy issues and these projects will be discussed,” Yardim told RIA Novosti in an interview.


The diplomat voiced confidence that the meeting between the two leaders in St. Petersburg “will give additional impetus not only on the Turkish Stream project, but all areas of our cooperation.”
