The Gazprom boss Alexey Miller said the construction of the 403 kilometres of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline running through Serbia's territory, would be finished by the end of this year, the Beta news agency reported on Friday.

Miller told the Belgrade-based Prva television that the pipeline would pass Serbia-Bulgaria boundary and run to Serbia’s border with Hungary.

During the Thursday’s visit by the Russian President Vladimir Putin to Serbia, Moscow and Belgrade signed a Memorandum of Understanding concerning the enlargement of the underground gas warehouse capacity in northern Serbia.

Russia’s Energy Minister Alexandar Novak told the state Tass news agency Serbia was not only receiving the gas but was also transporting it and that the current quantity stood at 350 million cubic meters a year, while the new capacity would increase to up to 750 million cubic meters annually.

Asking about the possibility of Serbia’s participation in the Turkish Stream, Miller said all issues regarding the gas transport would be solved in line with the European legislative and Serbia’s laws.

During Putin’s visit, Russia and Serbia signed over 20 commercial agreements, including a railway contract worth 230 million Euros and agreement on cooperation in the areas of digitalisation and innovation.
