Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday full gas flow from Iran will return in 10 to 15 days after the neighbor cut supplies last week due to a technical problem, prompting some Turkish manufacturers to halt production.


In an interview on broadcaster NTV, Erdogan said the government will subsidize customers' electricity bills and added industry will use energy in a controlled way.


Prices of Turkish gas and electricity were hiked sharply this year.
