The Minister of Environment and Energy of Greece, Panos Skourletis, announced that Athens reiterated interest in the construction of Turkish Stream pipeline supplying Russian gas to Europe, RIA Novosti reports on Tuesday.

Panos Skourletis added that Greece intended to take part in negotiations on this project. It is estimated that one of the lines of this pipeline will pass through Greece in direction to other countries. With these words, the Minister commented the resumption of negotiations between Moscow and Ankara on Turkish Stream pipeline construction.

It was reported that the marine line of the gas pipeline would pass 660 km along the old corridor of the South Stream, which had been annulled in 2014, and 250 km along the new corridor in direction of the European part of Turkey.
