Referring to Hungary’s long-term energy security, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said the government was counting on the eventual availability of a new southern gas supply route. Gazprom is working with Bulgaria and Serbia on delivering gas to Hungary and Austria via the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, he noted. The minister vowed that Hungary will have the necessary infrastructure for that supply route ready by the beginning of next year. Szijjártó said Miller had told him that Gazprom was not expecting any delays in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, with one-third of the pipeline already completed. Concerning Turkish Stream, Miller said Gazprom was in advanced talks with Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia, and that the completion of the new supply route was “completely realistic”. Szijjártó also held talks with Nikolay Fyodorov, first deputy chairman of Russia’s Federation Council, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov and Energy Minister Alexander Novak.
