“Today I had a working meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade of Hungary, Peter Szijjarto. During the dialogue, the need to develop bilateral relations between the two states was emphasized, especially in the energy field. Specifically, we discussed about gas from the Black Sea, about the BRUA pipeline and Hungary’s perspective on this important project, given that we want to find viable solutions for the diversification of food and transport sources, in order to strengthen energy security. We agreed to intensify the dialogue in order to collaborate on the discussions that will take place at the level of the European Union in order to meet the objectives of the transition to clean energy, using a technologically neutral diversified energy mix,” said Virgil Popescu, according to Agerpres.
