Borisov not sure about Burgas-Alexandroupolis

Bulgaria's Prime Minister Borisov has made it clear that there is hardly anyway that the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline will be built, reacting to an initiative for a joint position on part of the other participants, Russia and Greece.

Earlier on Monday, Russian Energy Minister Sergey Shmatko announced that Russia and Greece will be setting up a working group to draft a joint position on the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project.

Borisov commented in Sofia that the three shareholders in Trans-Balkan Pipeline, Bulgaria, Greece, and Russia, must await the results from the much anticipated environmental assessment of the project. And there is no way that assessment could be positive, he added.
