MOSCOW, December 26. /ITAR-TASS/. EU standards in the energy sector should not touch upon the Russian-Serbian agreements, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday in light of the upcoming talks on Serbia’s accession to the European Union.
“We consider the recent statements by Serbian representatives who confirm Belgrade’s readiness to continue the work on the South Stream project in compliance with the existing schedule,” the diplomat said.
Moscow praises Russian-Serbian cooperation on the South Stream project on the basis of the intergovernmental agreement on oil and gas cooperation, he said.
“The project has significance for Europe. Reliable supplies of Russian gas to many countries and strengthening global energy security are its priority goals,” Lukashevich said.
The project is being implemented under the plan, including on the territory of Serbia. The construction of the Serbian section of the gas pipeline was started on November 24 with the participation of the Serbian leadership and high-ranking Russian representatives.
