Jul 23, 2014First Memorandum of Understanding on Economic Cooperation was signed between the Ministry of Economy and Energy and the Development and Reform Commission of China's Anhui Province
"Energy is a part of the national security and should be in Bulgarian citizens favour. Before taking up the post of the existing cabinet, Bulgarian energy was being prepared for privatization, but we have terminated a lot of contracts for consultancy services ". That said the Minister of Economy and Energy Dragomir Stoynev in the studio of "Hello, Bulgaria" on Nova TV. According to Economy Minister, both the implementation of "South Stream" Project and the construction of 7th Unit of NPP "Kozloduy" are strategic for our country as they will ensure diversification.
Bulgarian citizens shall not pay any single lev for "South Stream" project, declared the Minister of Economy and Energy Dragomir Stoynev at the National Assembly turning to MPs from GERB with the words: "In 2012, you proposed BEH to issue corporate guarantees under a loan, but we firmly rejected that. There are no state guarantees for project implementation".
Dragomir Stoynev: "South Stream" seems rather irreversible as an European project. The question is not whether, but how exactly to be implemented
If we see the situation strategically without emotions - the project "South Stream" seems rather irreversible, which is important for both Europe and Bulgaria. Currently, disputes are focused on the matter how exactly to implement this European project. I am confident that they will find their solution, including the wider political context.
