Prime minister Boyko Borissov has said the string of the TurkStream pipeline for transit of Russian gas to Europe will extend from Turkey to Bulgaria, according to a Bulgarian government statement. The transit string of TurkStream will enter Bulgaria and the country will receive Russian natural gas which is to be transported to third countries, the government said following a meeting between Borissov and Russian president Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday."President Putin assured us is that he spoke with Turkish president yesterday and they do not mind this entry point to be located on the Bulgarian border," Borissov said in the statement. Borissov noted that the combined volume of Russian natural gas that could enter Bulgaria from the existing gas link through Ukraine and through TurkStream will total 34-35 billion cu m."We'll try to enter from another side, in this case through Turkey. I want to say once again that we support that option and I confirmed to the prime minister that we are ready to implement the project along that route," Putin said, according to a separate statement published by the Russian presidential office.
