MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian Foreign Ministry does not have any information regarding the resumption of negotiations between Moscow and Ankara on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project, the ministry's spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said Thursday.

"I have no such information available," Zakharova said, answering a question regarding the talks.

Moscow suspended a number of strategic bilateral projects, including negotiations on the Turkish Stream project following the downing of a Russian Su-24 aircraft by a Turkish F-16 fighter jet in Syria on November 24.

The pipeline was expected to run below the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and continue to a hub on the Turkish-Greek border, from where gas could be transferred to Southern Europe.
