Mr. Kavusoglu said, according to the Turkish newspaper Al Sabah, He “The energy issue will be discussed between the Energy Ministers of Turkey and Israel”, add it “If Israel manages to produce gas in large quantities that will allow it to export gas to Europe, Turkey will be its only economic route”.

The head of Turkish diplomacy underlined that his country The U.S. has “not yet decided not to buy gas from Russia on the grounds of energy security”.

Turkish officials have repeatedly said that it is impossible to give up gas supplies from Russia. Earlier this month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan highlighted the importance of Russian gas to Turkey’s economy, saying that his country “Cannot give up the supply of natural gas from Russia, as this is a strategic issue”.

According to Gazprom data, Turkey is one of the most important markets for Russian gas, as it ranks third in the list of top importers of Russian gas. The data shows that Turkey imported about 16.4 billion cubic meters of Russian gas in 2020.

Turkish and Israeli officials revealed on March 29 that the two sides are behind the scenes in talks to build a pipeline from occupied Palestine to Europe, which seeks to end its dependence on Russian hydrocarbons.
