Hungary’s gas supply is also assured for next year

Szijjarto held talks in Moscow

“Hungary’s gas supply will also be assured for next year if no agreement on gas transit comes about between Moscow and Kiev before the end of this year, in addition to which the planning and cooperation required for assuring a long-term domestic supply has also begun” the foreign minister said in Moscow, Kormany.hu reports.

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto held talks with CEO of Gazprom Alexei Miller in Moscow. “The issue of energy security has also received a geopolitical tone in view of the fact that the transit agreement between Russian and Ukraine will expire at the end of this year and no new contract has been signed as yet. Meaning that a situation could easily come about in which Russia will no longer be shipping gas to the European continent via Ukraine. We must prepare for this scenario, because we must always take into account the worst possible scenario when planning the security of the country’s energy supply” he said, according to the government's website.

He also spoke about the fact that the Hungarian Government is counting on another southerly transport route in the interests of assuring a long-term supply.
