The Austrian president is paying an official visit to Bulgaria. He is expected to meet Georgi Bliznashki, Bulgaria’s caretaker prime minister, and parliament Speaker Tsetska Tsacheva. Fischer will also attend a meeting of the Bulgarian-Austrian business forum.
“We actively support the South Stream project as an opportunity to diversify gas supply routes to Southeast and Central Europe. I have informed President Fischer that Bulgaria has political consensus on the South Stream construction,” Plevneliev stressed.
For his part, Heinz Fischer said the South Stream gas pipeline would run through the territories of countries that are EU and NATO members.
“We expect a reasonable solution to be found. The North Stream already exists. We need to build the South Stream for the purpose of diversification,” Fischer stressed.
