Russia Eyes Gas Cooperation With Turkey
Russia has announced plans to introduce a broader gas cooperation with Turkey, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said.
- "It is planned to announce a number of practical initiatives, including broader gas cooperation with Turkey and the supply of large batches of grain and fertilizers," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said.
- The Russian delegation will underline the importance of building logistical routes, technological clusters, and payment systems free from political turbulence, the ministry said.
- Turkey is currently planning to become an exporting country for gas. The country can start exporting its natural gas from Black Sea fields if a gas hub is opened on its territory, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Donmez said in an interview with the TRT TV Channel earlier this week.
- “We consider establishing partnerships with those countries to acquire a share in the production of natural gas or oil. We have been receiving offers, particularly from Africa, since we have increased our operations capabilities in the seas,” the minister has said to Daily News.
