Russia gave us 10,25% discount on the prices of gas starting from January 1st. This way, we will save about a billion dollars a year. Now, all we have to do is to sing a contract. But the Russians have promised to put a sign on a contract simultaneously with the signing of the Turkish Stream. Although these topics are substantive, for us it is not a problem,” Yildiz said in an interview to the news agency Anadolu.

According to him, Ankara has received coordinates for the land section of pipeline with a delay, which, on the other hand, delayed the permit to perform technical tests for the marine section of the pipeline. The minister said that the parties have not yet reached an agreement in regard to all matters. “But we will agree. The intergovernmental agreement on the project should be ratified in parliament, but before signing it, Turkey needs to form new Government”, said Yildiz.
