Turkmenistan's Ambassador to Russia Berdimyrat Rejepov has been appointed at the same time Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Turkmenistan to Bulgaria.

The relevant decree was signed by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, Trend.az informs.

Trend has reminded that Turkmenistan and Bulgaria have frequently discussed potential Turkmen gas supplies to the Balkan country.

Turkmenistan could join the Nabucco project with the construction of the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline.

Nabucco's shareholders are Austria's OMV, Hungary's MOL, Romania's Transgaz, the Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH), Turkey's Botas and Germany's RWE, with all partners holding an equal 16.67% share of the project.

The EU-backed gas pipeline was originally scheduled to go online in 2015, but the launch was eventually delayed by two years to 2017.
