Bulgaria is well aware of its energy interests within the common European strategy that is currently forming, Vice President Anguel Marin said in Macedonia.

Marin attended an Ohrid meeting of the presidents of the countries of Southeastern Europe dedicated on the energy policy in the region.

About 60% of the energy in Macedonia and Albania is imported, the two countries' heads said. The relations in the region are so interlaced that Bulgaria's promise to the EU to shut down Units 3&4 of its Nuclear Power Plant in Kozloduy, immediately affected Albania, president Alfred Moisiu said, adding that his country has sought help from the EU.

Electricity demand in the region is growing and about EUR 30 M need to be invested in the sector so all of Southeastern Europe's electricity needs are met.
