Szijjarto: Hungary’s energy supply ‘still secure’

Hungary's energy supply continues to be secure as Russia is still delivering crude oil to Hungary in line with its contractual obligations, Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister, said on Monday.

He said in a post on social media that Europe, including Hungary, still confronted key energy security challenges since imports remained the continent’s main sources of energy, and he referred to “worrying reports” about attacks on energy infrastructure in the war-torn neighbourhood.

Szijjarto said that he had talked by phone with Alexander Novak, Russia’s deputy prime minister for energy affairs, who underscored Russia’s commitment to delivering crude to Hungary, “so the country’s energy supply remains secure”.
