“Since we are planning to buy an increasing amount of gas from Azerbaijan and Turkiye, we will need Bulgaria’s transit capacities more and more,” Peter Szijjarto said on Facebook.

The minister said the Bulgarian president had assured him of his country’s readiness to cooperate.

Szijjarto and Radev agreed that the possible interruption of deliveries through Ukraine would increase the importance of the Bulgaria-Serbia-Hungary transit route.

Szijjarto highlighted the Bulgarian president’s merits in the advancement of bilateral ties, and his crucial role in making Bulgaria a “reliable partner with regard to gas transit deliveries.”
