It is likely that the Turkish side of the project is going to demand
that executors of the South Stream natural gas pipeline running
through Turkey expel its members of French company EDF. It now seems
as though the NABUCCO project is looking more attractive for Turkey
as there are no French companies participating there. The Turkish
position against France was determined by the recent adoption by the
French lower chamber of parliament of a law which envisages criminal
prosecution for those who express doubt over the facts of the Armenian
genocide which allegedly occurred in Turkey in the beginning of the
20th century.
