Novak: signing agreement “Turkish stream” is not a long process

ANTALYA, November 16. Energy Minister Alexander Novak believes that the signing of the agreement on construction of gas pipeline “Turkish stream” is not a long process. This is the Minister told reporters on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

“It’s hard to say, it will depend on the approval of the text. I don’t think it’s a long process,” he said, answering the question about when it might be signed an agreement on construction of the pipeline.

Novak added that the signing is unlikely to take place in December 2015, as the Turkish government is not formed yet, and Turkey’s energy Minister may be appointed at the end of November – beginning of December this year.
