BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 31. Serbia expects to intensify discussions with Azerbaijan on gas supply, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia and Minister of Mining and Energy, Prof. Zorana Mihajlovic, PhD, told Trend.
“When we complete our interconnection with Bulgaria, it will allow for other suppliers to appear on our market and to reduce dependence on only one supplier. We expect to intensify cooperation and discussions with Azerbaijan regarding this matter, which is why it is important that, during the visit of the delegation of the Ministry, among other things, an Agreement on cooperation in the field of energy and mining will be signed between the two governments and we will have a meeting with the Minister of Energy of Azerbaijan,” she said.
Serbia expects that by activating new deposits with confirmed natural gas reserves in the Caspian region the country will be able to secure additional quantities of natural gas for its needs and that the construction of interconnections will become a transit route to other countries in the region, said Mihajlovic, adding that this would further increase the energy stability and security of the entire region.
