BELGRADE - Russian Ambassador to Belgrade Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko on Wednesday said it was good news that Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov had confirmed Bulgaria intended to complete by 2020 a leg of the TurkStream gas pipeline that will run from the country's border with Turkey to the Serbian border.

"As is known, this project, which is one of the key projects, is in full swing In Serbia itself," Botsan-Kharchenko posted on his Twitter account.

The Supreme Administrative Court of Bulgaria on Tuesday said it had ended a dispute over the selection of contractors for the construction of the Bulgarian stretch of the pipeline, clearing the way for the project to proceed.

The two contractors involved in the dispute reached an agreement on dividing the construction works.
