Gas pipeline and infrastructure projects could be discussed when Turkish President Erdogan visits Serbia in September, Serbia’s state-owned Vecernje novosti reported on August 9, 2017.
Erdogan will make an official visit in September, with regional political, energy and economic topics on the agenda.
After Russia announced the cancellation of its South Stream natural gas pipeline, which was to run through Serbia, Ankara’s Turkish Stream is being seen in Belgrade as a potential replacement.
Turkish Stream will pipe gas from Russia to Turkey and then on to Europe, it is envisaged.
Although Serbia is not mentioned in the official plan published on the Gazprom web portal, after Hungary and Russia signed an agreement on July 5 to extend the pipeline to go via Bulgaria and Serbia to Hungary, Serbian officials are hoping that Russia is reviving its former ambitions.
«This is a major development opportunity for our state, economy and industry,» said Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in July 2017.
