Pipeline opens under the eyes of Putin and Xi

On Monday (2), Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping oversaw the inauguration of a pipeline that will transport natural gas from Siberia to northeastern China.

By video conference, Xi told Putin that pipeline newly inaugurated is "a historic project of bilateral energy cooperation". "This is a genuinely historic event not only for the market energy global, but above all for us, for Russia and China," confirmed President Putin.

In addition, Moscow also intends to launch two projects: the pipeline Nord Steam 2 submarine for Germany and the TurkStream pipeline turkey and the european south.
