SOFIA, December 11, 16:36 /ITAR-TASS/. The South Stream gas project is economically beneficial for Bulgaria and Serbia. It will also guarantee reliable natural gas supplies, Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski said on Wednesday after meeting his Serbian counterpart Ivica Dacic.

“As for European requirements for this project, we will take account of them during talks which we are going to have soon,” Oresharski went on to say.

“EU requirements for the project are a question, which Russia and the European Union should solve at a high political level. Serbia has no problems with the South Stream project. We really want to see it implemented because at present we are receiving Russian gas only via Ukraine,” Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic said.

“We are not part of the European Union. However, we are not in a position to build the South Stream pipeline on our own. It is of colossal importance for our economy,” Oresharski added.
