ISTANBUL Oct 10 Russian Energy Minister
Alexander Novak said on Monday he expected a Russian-Turkish
intergovernmental agreement on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline
project to be signed in Istanbul this week.
"The document is almost ready, only a few details are left.

pipeline)," Novak told reporters.
Novak said the issue of a gas price discount for Turkey's
