Russia's Putin in Turkey to inaugurate new gas pipeline
Russian President Vladimir Putin has met with Turkey's leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Istanbul to open a major new gas pipeline.
The pipeline - known as Turkstream - is five years in the making.
It not only allows Russia to sell more gas to Europe - but it also helps them bypass an adversarial Ukraine.
Al Jazeera's Sinem Koseoglu has more from Istanbul.
Matthew Bryza, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's Eurasia Center and Global Energy Center, talks to Al Jazeera about the development.
