There are Italian companies showing interest in the construction of both Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream, Russia's Deputy PM Arkadiy Dvorkovich has said.
"This is no secret, the company Saipem is taking part in the respective procedures carried out by Gazprom on Nord Stream and Turkish Stream," TASS quotes him as saying.
Nord Stream II, a proposed new Russia-Germany gas pipeline, is not in the EU's interests, the European Council President Donald Tusk has said.
"In my perspective, Nord Stream [II] does not help diversification, nor would it reduce our energy dependency," Tusk said at a press conference in Brussels on Friday, according to euobserver.com.
Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said on Sunday Sofia is not intending to take action against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project.
On the sidelines of an EU-Turkey summit in Brussels, he commented on last week's reports by Reuters that Sofia would be one of the signatories to a letter calling on the EU Commission to scrutinize the project.
