Baku, October 9, AZERTAC
“Political factors will not affect the agreement between Russia and Turkey on Turkish Stream project,” said Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller.
"We have already started work on an intergovernmental agreement," he said.
"It does not include talks on concrete details concerning the capacity of the pipeline or schedules for the project implementation, but work on the text of the agreement is underway and it is not influenced by any factors," Miller added.
Russian jets have recently violated Turkish air space.
Gazprom had decided to nearly halve the planned capacity of the Turkish Stream pipeline project to 32 billion cubic meters (bcm) a year, from an original capacity of 63 bcm.
