Russia and Turkey will sign Turkish Stream deal in 2016
The Turkish government has not yet been formed, the signing of the intergovernmental agreement on the Turkish Stream after the elections, not earlier than in December-January," Novak told journalists.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called a snap general election on November 1, after parties that had won the majority of seats in the June election failed to form a coalition.
On Friday, Novak said a Russian delegation will soon arrive in Turkey to discuss the technical aspects of the final agreement on the Turkish Stream.
The Turkish Stream is a proposed gas pipeline with an annual capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, running from Russia to Turkey beneath the Black Sea. The pipeline is expected to continue to a hub on the Turkish-Greek border, from where it could be extended to southern Europe. ■
