Hungary, Romania sign key energy deals

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Wednesday said he has signed important agreements with Romanian Energy Minister Sebastian Burduja that will allow Hungary to continue to rely on Romania's cooperation in guaranteeing the country's energy security.

Szijjarto said on Facebook that he and Burduja had agreed to increase the capacity of the interconnectors between their countries’ gas networks so that Hungary could access as much of the gas extracted from the Black Sea gas fields as possible.

Hungary and Romania will also begin preparations to link their electricity grids, Szijjarto said.

Meanwhile, the minister said Burduja had assured him that Hungary could continue to transport Russian nuclear fuel for its Paks plant through Romania.
