Russia and Turkey, at loggerheads since Ankara shot down a Russian military plane, have suspended talks on their joint TurkStream project to pipe gas to Turkey and southern Europe, Russia’s energy minister said Thursday.

“Currently talks are suspended,” energy minister Alexander Novak said, quoted by RIA Novosti news agency. He added that an intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation in charge of the project has stopped meeting as part of Russia’s retaliatory measures against Ankara.
