SOFIA, Bulgaria, April 25. Supply of
Azerbaijani gas is the most effective solution to the energy
crisis, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary Peter
Szijjártó said, trend reports.
Szijjártó made the remark at the ceremony dedicated to the
signing of a Memorandum of Understanding for encouraging
cooperation among Bulgartransgaz (Bulgaria), Transgaz (Romania),
FGSZ Hungary), EURSTREAM (Slovakia) and the State Oil Company of
Azerbaijan (SOCAR) in Sofia.
"We depend on other sources, so for us diversification is
important," he noted.
The minister pointed out that Hungary's gas infrastructure is
critical for Europe.
"We need additional resources. New sources and additional routes
are the best solutions to the EU energy crisis. Supplies from
Azerbaijan are the best way out for Eastern Europe, but the demand
of all countries is greater than the available capacity, so
infrastructure must be built,” Szijjártó also said.
“We must invest. The EU should also do this because the problems
of Central and Eastern Europe are a pan-European problem. Without
EU support, we won't be able to get the required amount of gas from
Azerbaijan. Next time we would like to see Türkiye here,” he
Azerbaijan exported 2.9 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe in
the first quarter of 2023.
