An inter-government agreement on the Nabucco gas pipeline will be signed in Ankara on July 13, government spokesman Domokos Szollár told MTI on Friday, confirming a report by Reuters.
Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai will sign the agreement, Szollár said.
Romanian Economy Minister Adriean Videanu told Reuters on Friday the inter-government accord on the pipeline would be signed on July 13. Turkey's demand to take 15% of the pipeline's throughput for domestic use or re-export "is solved", he added.
The Nabucco pipeline would bring gas from Central Asia to Europe, reducing the region's energy dependence on Russia. (MTI-ECONEWS)
