Talks have resumed between Russia and Turkey on the price of gas, according to reports.
The Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said the move had been taken in an interview with a Turkish newspaper.
It comes after a gas price dispute between the Turkish pipeline operator Botas and Russia’s state gas producer Gazprom.
The incident led to Botas launching international arbitration proceedings against Gazprom in October last year.
Novak said he hoped both sides would have a “common position”.
