Greece is hoping the agreement with Russia on the construction of the gas pipeline connecting Turkeish Stream and Central Europe will be signed very soon.

The statement was made by Greek Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis after the meeting held in Athens between Greek PM Alexis Tsipras and Gazprom president Alexey Miller, TASS information agency reported.

''We will continue the discussion with the Russian representatives and are hoping that we will reach an agreement pretty soon, thus providing extreme benfits to our country, to our economy and of course for the cooperation in the region and all of Europe,'' noted the Energy Minister.

Meanwhile, Alexei Miller guaranteed that '' 47 B cubic meters of gas will be transited through Greece'' following the construction of the gas pipeline from the Turkish-Greek border. In his words, there is no doubt that such volumes of fuel will allow Greece to attract credits for the realization of other projects in the country.
