Hungary counts on Turkey to diversify gas supply

In addition to Russian gas, Azeri and Turkish gas may also arrive in Hungary via the Turkish Stream in the future, informed the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó during his visit to Turkey.

“Turkey is a reliable and predictable transit partner of Hungary,” he stated adding that today the Turkish Stream pipeline is the only reliable east-west energy transport infrastructure in the whole of Europe.

The Minister confirmed that Hungary continues to count on Turkey, as in the future it may buy gas also from Azerbaijan which could be delivered through the Turkish Stream to Europe. He noted that Hungary also counts on Turkish natural gas and there are ongoing negotiations with Turkish energy company Botas regarding this step, the Minister pointed out.

The Minister also highlighted the importance of nuclear energy when it comes to energy cooperation, given that Hungary and Turkey are building nuclear plants that use the same Russian technology. The reactor blocks being built in Turkey are expected to come online sooner, and will provide useful information to Hungary, he said.
