ANKARA, Turkey, July 6 (UPI) -- Polish Speaker Marek Jurek discussed energy cooperation with Turkish officials during a visit to Ankara Thursday.
"The most important information I will bring to Poland is that such strategic projects as Nabucco, which seemed so far away in Poland, now turns out to be quite possible to be implemented in the near future," he said during a news conference following his meeting with Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Minister Mehmet Hilmi Guler.
The comments were reported by Poland's PAP news agency.
The Nabucco gas pipeline is designed bypasses Russia and is to provide natural gas from Asia to Central Europe.
Guler said the meeting dealt with energy security, including resources such as coal and nuclear energy.
"Poland showed interest in investing in nuclear energy projects. It seems that we will be able to launch a joint activity in this field," he said.
