BELGRADE (Serbia), December 20 (SeeNews) – Russian president Vladimir Putin has said his country expects to increase its exports of natural gas to Serbia to 3.5 billion cubic metres in 2022 from 2 billion cubic metres in 2017.
Russia is also working on a project to include Serbian partners in Turkish Stream - the project of Gazprom for the construction of a new pipeline for transport of Russian gas to Europe bypassing Ukraine, Putin said in a video file posted on the website of Russia's Presidential Executive Office late on Tuesday.
"In the future, Serbia could become an important segment in the transit of Russian gas," Putin said during a news conference following a meeting with Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic in Moscow.
Russia's government said on Monday it adopted an amendment to an intergovernmental agreement with Serbia to allow the Southeast European country to re-export Russian natural gas to third countries.
Landlocked Serbia imports 82% of the gas it needs from Russia through a pipeline crossing Hungary and Ukraine. The rest comes from domestic sources. Belgrade works on a project for the construction of a gas link with Bulgaria, which is expected completed by 2019 and become operational a year later.
