Borissov: Bulgaria strongly committed to gas interconnectors, especially with Greece

Bulgaria is strongly committed to the construction of gas interconnectors, especially with Greece, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov said at a meeting with US special envoy and co-ordinator for international energy affairs at the state department, Amos Hochstein.

Borissov and Hochstein discussed opportunities for diversification of gas supply sources and routes as a guarantee of energy independence, the Bulgarian government said in a June 10 media statement.

Specific topics of discussion included the construction of interconnectors with neighbouring countries and the Southern Gas Corridor project, the media statement said.

Progress on building the South Gas Corridor, the inter-systemic gas connector between Bulgaria and Greece and the inter-connectors with Bulgaria’s other neighbouring countries were among the topics discussed at June 10 talks between Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev and Hochstein, the President’s office said.
