Russia and Serbia will sign a document to enable the South Stream project to be carried out on Serbian territory within days, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.
"We're at quite an advanced stage in the negotiating process, indeed we're ready in the next few days to sign a document that will in my view herald the transition of this project to a new phase where our relations with Serbia are concerned," Medvedev told a press conference following talks with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic.
Medvedev said that South Stream shouldn't be politicized, in Russia's view.
"It is mutually beneficial, and our talks with our Serbian partners have confirmed this very approach," he said.
Vucic said the sides managed during talks on Monday to resolve all necessary issues for the project's implementation.
