PM Tsipras, Putin Discuss Plan for Russian Gas Pipeline through Greece

In talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the telephone on Thursday, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras confirmed the Greek government's willingness to participate - via a public-sector company - in the construction of a pipeline carrying Russian natural gas through Greece, the prime minister's office announced.
The Russian president said that he intended to support a plan for financing the Greek company building the pipeline, which will transport gas from the Greek-Turkish border to the rest of Europe, to be used in energy and developmental investments, and which might be paid off from the profits of the company operating the pipeline.
Apart from energy cooperation, the conversation also touched on all aspects of bilateral relations and Tsipras' upcoming participation in an International Economic Forum to be held in St. Petersburg on 18-20 June.
The two leaders reaffirmed their willingness to proceed with everything agreed on during Tsipras' recent visit to Moscow, in order to boost bilateral relations.
