Cyprus could play an important role in two projects meant to offer new sources of gas supply for Bulgaria, Energy Minister Temenouzhka Petkova told reporters on September 26 after meeting with her Cypriot counterpart Yiorgos Lakkotrypis, public broadcaster Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) reported.

Petkova and Lakkotrypis discussed energy sector co-operation between the two countries, with a bilateral energy task force holding its first meeting in Nicosia as part of Petkova’s visit to the island, BNR said.

“Our main priority in the energy sector is diversifying natural gas sources and delivery routes. We are looking closely at every opportunity that leads to that goal,” Petkova was quoted as saying.
