A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Panagiotis Lafazanis, Minister of Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy of the Republic of Greece took place within the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2015.
The parties addressed the construction of capacities in Greece for supplying European markets with Russian pipeline gas from the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. In particular, an emphasis was put on the preparation of a pertinent inter-governmental memorandum.
