Bulgaria: Moscow: Hungary Could Join North Stream, Turkish Stream BGNES

In the near future, Hungary could join the projects of Gazprom North stream and Turkish Stream, announced Yuri Ushakov, aide to Russia’s President on the eve of Putin’s visit to Budapest.

“I would like to point out the fair prospects for strengthening cooperation between Russia and Hungary in the oil-gas sphere: deliveries from Russia account for 75% of Hungarian consumption of oil and 60% of gas consumption. It is not improbable for our Hungarian partners to manage to join in the new routes developed by Gazprom for the delivery of energy supplies like North Stream and Turkish Stream. The issue of a link from Turkish Stream to Hungary is being discussed now.”

At their meeting in Budapest on Thursday, Putin and Hungary’s PM Orban will discuss the situation in Ukraine and the Middle East. According to Ushakov, the two politicians will also talk about restoring the relations between the EU and Russia.

“Hungarians are playing a sufficiently positive role in this aspect,” underlined Ushakov.
