Bulgaria’s hope is that the gas interconnector with Serbia will be completed no later than 2017, according to Dragomir Stoinev, economy and energy minister in the Bulgarian Socialist Party government.

Stoinev was speaking after talks on September 30 2013 with Serbian energy, development and environmental protection minister Zorana Mihajlović.
