“We have sent (the intergovernmental agreement) on the first thread…The Russian side has prepared its proposals on the first thread of the Turkish Stream and has sent it to the Turkish side,” the source told journalists.
The agreement was sent several weeks ago and added that the remaining legs of the pipeline will be covered in separate intergovernmental agreements.
