Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, and Slovakia have appealed to the
European Commission (EC) to make the issue a priority for Brussels
to support the developments needed to guarantee energy security in
the region, Azernews reports referring to Hungary Today.
Hungary welcomes Azerbaijan's plans to double gas supplies to
the EU by 2027, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said at
a joint press conference in Budapest with Azerbaijani Economy
Minister Mikayil Jabbarov on January 24, 2023.
He stated that increasing natural gas production in Azerbaijan
could play an important role in the energy security of Hungary and
Central Europe, but this requires the development of infrastructure
in the region, which in turn, requires the EU support.
“If Europe cannot get new energy sources, if it cannot build new
energy transport routes, its energy supply will not be secure,” the
Hungarian minister warned.
Péter Szijjártó added that Hungary, together with Bulgaria,
Romania, and Slovakia, had appealed to the European Commission to
make the issue a priority for Brussels to support the developments
needed to guarantee the regional energy security.
