"The construction with success of a common project on a large scale, such as the construction of a gas pipeline through the Black Sea, clearly shows that the strategic partnership of the Russian-Turkish provides significant results and tangible," said Putin.
"The interaction between Russia and Turkey develops in almost all fields, despite the difficult international situation and the attempts of many international actors to prevent the expansion of mutually beneficial cooperation between our Countries, our work goes forward on his path," continued the leader of the Kremlin. Putin also thanked Erdogan for "political will" to achieve the TurkStream; "in front of Russia and Turkey there are still many projects".
"The TurkStream, for which we have made many efforts with our Russian friends, is a project of historical importance both at the level of our bilateral relations and of the energy map," said Erdogan. "Today is an historic opening," he continued, "well 31,75 billion cubic meters of gas carried by the pipeline, 15,75 will be destined to Turkey". The Turkish president then spoke of the relationship with Russia, which has been consolidated over the last three years. "Between us, the diplomatic relations are continuous and will continue to do so. Our friendship is rock-solid," he assured Erdogan
