Macedonia has no clear decision on South Stream pipeline

Authorities in Skopje are yet to decide on the South Stream Russian gas pipeline project.

Aleksandar Dukovski, head of the State Agency on Energy, said that state authorities are deliberating on the project, following Bulgaria’s and Serbia’s decision to suspend the project (Serbia denied earlier reports that it had already had taken a decision to delay construction in the wake of Bulgaria’s suspension of work pending the outcome of talks with the European Commission, which imposed an infringement procedure against Sofia).

“This issue will be discussed when all facts come to light. Bulgaria has not yet officially declared its positioning about the construction of the pipeline,” Dukovski said.
