Serbia is ready to take part in the Turkish Stream project, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said during a briefing following his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Belgrade on May 15.

Lavrov arrived in Serbia on May 14. He has already met with Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic and Prime Minister Alexander Vucic. “Unfortunately, due to the EU’s non-constructive attitude, we have failed to carry out the South Stream project in the territory of Serbia but we hope to enlarge our energy dialogue,” Lavrov said.

AsEADaily reported, in early December 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin stopped the South Stream project – a gas pipeline that was supposed to run through the Black Sea and Bulgaria to Hungary, Austria and Italy. Instead, Russia agreed with Turkey to build a Turkish Stream gas pipeline and a gas hub on the Turkish-Greek border.

On May 8, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic said that Serbia was not going to get gas through Turkish Stream.
