Serbia and Macedonia also intend to participate in the project.
This is a blow to the unity of the EU position on the Ukrainian issue, writes the Euobserver.
The foreign ministers of these two countries added their names to the Declaration on "Turkish Stream" project, where their partners are Macedonia and Serbia.
The text of the declaration states that signatories "express their support for the creation of a commercially viable route for diversification of natural gas sources through the territory of Turkey."
Earlier, it was reported that Russia had decided to abandon the "South Stream."Source: euobserver.com
