  Hungary ready to join Turkish Stream

Budapest is interested in joining the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, Hungarian ambassador to Russia Norbert Konkoi said.

According to him, Hungary is interested in diversification of gas routes. "We now receive gas from Russia from the east, but we are also interested in gas delivery from the south," the diplomat stressed.

"Hungary is ready to take the gas if the Bulgarian and Serbian threads are constructed," RIA Novosti cited Konkoi as saying.

The Turkish Stream pipeline was designed to consist of two branches with a length of over 900 kilometers and a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters each. One of them, finished in May 2018, is to carry Russian gas to Turkey, while the other is to transit gas to the European countries through Turkey and is to be finished in 2019.
