Implementation of the project of construction of gas pipeline «Turkish stream» is extremely important for Serbia, said on Monday the first Deputy Prime Minister and foreign Minister Ivica Dacic.

«For Serbia it is extremely important that the Russian side considers it a priority route of the pipeline «Turkish stream», which would be passing through our country», — said Dacic.

According to him, this would ensure the stability of gas supplies and would allow Serbia to become a transit country for gas supplies.

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. The pipeline is planned before the end of 2019.
