Baku, Azerbaijan, July 26
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
Turkey will reassess all projects with Russia, said Turkey’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Berat Albayrak in his interview with Haber Turk TV channel.
“Turkey will reassess all projects with Russia after the crisis in relations,” said the minister.
He added that the normalization of relations is for the benefit of both countries.
Turkey and Russia intended to implement a number of energy projects, such as the Turkish Stream pipeline and the construction of the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant. These projects were frozen after the crisis in the two countries’ relations.
The relations between Russia and Turkey deteriorated after the Su-24 bomber incident in 2015.
On June 27, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sent a letter of condolences to Putin over the death of Russian Su-24 pilot and expressed regret over the incident.
Earlier, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, commenting on the improvement of relations between Turkey and Russia, thanked Azerbaijan for its contribution to normalization of the relations.
