We import two thirds of the gas we consume and that makes energy security important for us. If we become producer, we would not be dependent on external resources, and that is very similar of Turkish energy market. If Poland becomes productive, this situation would allow us to make cooperation with Turkey. We are ready to establish a dialogue with Turkey in terms of energy," Stelmach told Turkish reporters in Warsaw, the Polish capital.
