Energy-dependent Turkey will ask for a discount on the price of the gas it buys from Russia, its energy minister said on Friday.
"The negotiations and agreements we concluded with Russia give us the right for a price revision in the coming months," Energy Minister Taner Yildiz told reporters in Ankara.
"We will convey our demands on this to Russia and Gazprom officials," he added.
Gazprom deputy head Alexander Medvedev will hold a meeting with Turkish government officials on Monday for further discussions, according to the minister.
