Hungary requested confirmation of additional gas supplies through Bulgaria

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó recently had a phone conversation with Bulgarian President Rumen Radev, during which they discussed the possibility of additional gas supplies to Hungary through the Solidarity Ring. This information comes from a press release issued by the Bulgarian presidency.

Just a few days ago, Budapest inked a gas supply contract with Turkiye’s Botas, which also included the potential for access to the company’s liquefied gas terminals in the Mediterranean.

Radev highlighted Bulgaria’s increased capacity for natural gas transmission, citing the commissioning of the IGB interconnector last year and the contracts allowing access to the Botas terminal.

It’s worth noting that Sijarto had been part of a meeting in Sofia back in April, during which the groundwork was laid for the creation of the Solidarity Ring gas corridor. This corridor is designed to facilitate the transportation of larger quantities of natural gas from Azerbaijan and involves the participation of Slovakia and Romania as well.

In addition to gas-related matters, Peter Sijarto and Rumen Radev also discussed Radev’s participation in the Summit on Demography in Budapest, an event to which he had been invited by President Katalin Novak.
