Greece is still interested in the construction of a pipeline supplying Russian gas to Europe via its territory, Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Georgios Katrougalos said on Tuesday.

 

 

“Our interest in the construction of a gas hub remains unchanged,” Katrougalos said Tuesday.

 

He pointed out that the country’s Ministry of Energy had not made any decision on the issue yet, adding that the National Council on Foreign Policy would hold a meeting devoted to the energy issues on May 10,

 

“These issues will be in the focus of discussion on May 10,” Katrougalos said.

 

The Turkish Stream project was announced in the end of 2014 by Russian President Vladimir Putin on his state visit to Turkey. The pipeline is expected to run beneath the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and continue to a hub on the Turkish-Greek border, from where the gas could be transferred to Southern Europe.
