SOFIA, June 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) is surprised about Bulgaria’s decision to suspend the implementation of the Russian South Stream pipeline project, BSP Deputy Chairman, Chairman of the parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Yanaki Stoilov told ITAR-TASS.
Stoilov declared the BSP support for the project provided the European Union’s requirements were taken into account. Describing the decision to suspend the project announced by the Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski as “confusing”, he said the project would better be adjusted during its realization.
The project has obviously become “hostage to geopolitical interests”, while the government should have been tougher in asserting the national interests, Stoilov believes.
The politician finds it inappropriate that the decision was announced after Oresharski had met the US senators. The issue should be discussed by the European Union, Bulgaria and Russia as the parties directly involved, Stoilov said, adding the suspension of the project was not on the agenda of the meeting among ministers and deputies a day earlier.
Stoilov declined to predict what would happen next, doubting the government system and the government’s capability to continue working. The country is now “entering the new development stage, and Bulgarian internal affairs are unforeseeable”, the politician believes.
