Bulgarian, Romanian presidents urge energy independence for SEE

Energy dependency is the biggest weakness of South Eastern Europe and building a modern energy infrastructure and interconnection of the national gas and electricity grids should be a shared priority, Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev and his Romanian counterpart Klaus Iohannis agreed in talks in Sofia on June 15.

Plevneliev, hosting Iohannis on the Romanian president’s two-day visit to Bulgaria, said that for Bulgaria, it is extremely important for the interconnector with Romania to become operational as soon as possible and for flow to be reversible.

The gas interconnector is intended to be part of the future North-South energy corridor, the Bulgarian President’s office said.

During his visit, Iohannis will visit the construction site near the Bulgarian town of Marten.
