By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:
Hungary is interested in including Azerbaijani gas in country’s future energy mix, Hungarian Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Viktor Szederkényi told Trend.
Szederkényi noted that in many areas, the two countries can build on existing or previous cooperation, including in the energy sector which is of strategic importance for both our countries.
“Besides our investment in the oil industry, Hungary is interested in including Azerbaijani gas in our future energy mix. This was reiterated by Minister Szijjártó at the 7th ministerial meeting of the Southern Gas Corridor Advisory Council on February 11. We welcome the successful completion of the Southern Gas Corridor which has a positive effect on Europe’s energy security,” he said.
Talking the COVID-19 affecting the already existing cooperation between the countries, Szederkényi said that naturally, the restrictions affected some bilateral work, as there were less personal exchanges, some consultations, visits had to be postponed.
“But we tried to adapt to these – hopefully only temporary – new realities, and the development of business relations remained high on our agenda, so even throughout the pandemic period contacts continued at all levels,” he said.
