Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, spoke on Thursday of two deals signed between Greece and Bulgaria which “change the energy map of Southeast Europe.”
In joint statements with the President of Bulgaria, Ruben Radev, in Athens, Mitsotakis spoke about the signing of two memoranda of cooperation in the fields of security and natural gas supply, as well as oil.
Mitsotakis said these agreements, which may include the possible construction of an Alexandroupolis-Burgas pipeline, will make the two countries energy providers in the European Union and will contribute to Europe’s energy security.
This was a bilateral agreement, Mitsotakis said, which “has a European scope as it turns our countries into a crossroads for the movement of gas to the whole of Europe.”
On his part, Radev underlined that the traditionally good cooperation between Greece and Bulgaria was further strengthened by the two memoranda and thanked Mitsotakis for his country’s support.
