Bulgaria has always supported Southern Gas Corridor project, says energy minister


Bulgaria has always supported and actively participated in the Southern Gas Corridor project, said the country’s energy minister, Temenuzhka Petkova.

 

She made the remarks at a conference, titled “Bulgaria-Azerbaijan: 25 Years of Diplomatic Relations: Perspectives of Bilateral Partnership and Multilateral Cooperation”, which was held in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia, APA reported citing Focus agency.

 

Azerbaijan is Bulgaria’s strategic partner, and relations between the two countries are developing actively, said Minister Petkova.  

 

“Bulgaria has always supported and actively participated in the Southern Gas Corridor project,” said the minister, adding. “Besides, there are a few more projects which Bulgaria is involved in, such as the Greece-Bulgaria and Turkey-Bulgaria connectors. There were some concerns about the Bulgaria-Greece connector. However, there has been significant progress in this area for the last few years. This would have been impossible without our partner Azerbaijan. Our government is going to work hard to make sure relations between Azerbaijan and Bulgaria develop in all areas.”

 

Addressing the event, Azerbaijani ambassador to Bulgaria Nargiz Gurbanova said that Azerbaijan’s relations with Bulgaria in recent years have reached the level of strategic partnership and the two countries aim to further develop bilateral relations in areas of mutual interest.

 

She said Bulgaria was one of the first countries to recognize Azerbaijan’s independence, noting that bilateral relations began back in the Soviet era.

 

"Our countries may be different but have a lot in common. Both countries have experienced significant political and economic changes,” said the ambassador, adding. “Having entered the Euro-Atlantic system, Bulgaria has launched large-scale changes. Azerbaijan has established market economy and signed several agreements in the fields of energy and transport, which paves the way for economic opportunities for both my country and the entire region.”
