Erdogan orders construction of Russian gas project

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has ordered the construction of a new gas infrastructure in Turkey to redistribute Russian supplies.

According to Turkish media reports, Erdogan told reporters on the return flight from Astana in Kazakhstan that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin had asked the Turkish Energy Ministry and the responsible body in Russia to work together on this matter.

Putin wants a gas hub

Erdogan met yesterday with Putin in Kazakhstan. On this occasion, the two presidents agreed to expand economic cooperation between their countries.

Putin specifically proposed the creation of a gas hub in Turkey to transport natural gas to other countries, as this route “is currently the safest delivery route.”

Erdogan apparently agreed that construction work should begin as soon as possible, according to the reports. “There will be no delay in this matter.” The gas center could be built in Thrace in the border area with Greece and Bulgaria.

France: “It makes no sense”

The project faced a lack of understanding in the European Union. Such a project is “meaningless” because Europe wants anyway to reduce its dependence on Russian gas, according to the French presidential office.
