Recep Erdoğan: Turkey and Russia agree on 10 pct discount on natural gas26 May 2018 | 18:47 | FOCUS News Agency
Speaking at a rally of the ruling Justice And Development (AK) Party in eastern Erzurum province, Erdoğan said Turkey demanded a discount on the price of the natural gas from Russia via the Blue Stream and the Western Line in 2015.
The President said Turkey will also get a refund of $1 billion for the purchases made in the last two years when Gazprom initially agreed on the discount in early 2016.
Turkey, the second biggest consumer of Russian gas after Germany, imports around 30 billion cubic meters of gas from Russia annually via the two pipelines.
