Sputnik: Turkey, Russia Should Work on Alternative to South Stream Creation

Russia and Turkey should concentrate their efforts to create a new gas pipeline project that would serve as a substitute for the abandoned South Stream project, Turkish Ambassador to Russia told Sputnik Radio Turkey Wednesday.

"Currently there are no projects that can substitute the 'South Stream'. We now have to work hard on it together," Yardim said.

Yardim also noted that energy cooperation with Russia was of strategic importance for Turkey, stressing that the sides are discussing potential routes for a new Black Sea gas pipeline.
