The gas pipeline «Turkish stream» is making a real contribution to European energy security, said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

«This is a real contribution to energy security. Because in a very short time the gas will go not only to Turkey, he not only will contribute to the development of the Turkish economy, he will go on to European consumers», — said Peskov on the channel «Russia-1».

He added that this is not a populist approach to energy security in Europe and that many countries now put the question to and went to them for some branch of the pipeline.

The project «Turkish stream» involves construction of a pipeline, consisting of two lines with capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters each. The first line is designed to supply gas to Turkish consumers, the other for the gas supply countries in southern and South-Eastern Europe.
