“We already have contacts with Azerbaijan. In the current initiative we will play the role of transit country, however, at the same time we found gas fields in the Black Sea,” Romanian Energy Minister Virgil Daniel Popescu told reporters after the signing ceremony of the memorandum on the supply of Azerbaijani gas with the Ring of Solidarity in Sofia, APA reports.
The minister also talked about his country joining the "Solidarity Ring".
“In late 2026, or early 2027 we will join Solidarity Ring. Therefore, in my speech, I touched upon the supply of Ukraine’s gas supply. Ukraine is also in this region and we should support its security of gas supply. Turkiye can also join the process. Therefore, we can not import more gas from Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is a main actor in this process and is a strategic partner of both Romania and Bulgaria. We have long-term relations with this country. Azerbaijan is a reliable partner. Azerbaijan plays an important role in the security of the energy supply of the region,” he noted.
