Bulgaria Denies Discussing Change in South Stream Status

A senior Bulgarian cabinet member has denied a media report claiming Bulgaria and Russia are discussing possibilities to exempt  the South Stream project from EU restrictions.
State radio BNR quoted Bulgaria’s caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva as saying on Wednesday that no talks are currently underway to circumvent EU energy legislation by reclassifying the Bulgarian section of South Stream into a field pipeline.
The caretaker government, which took office on August 6, has frozen the construction of South Stream, which the EU executive body considers to be in breach of EU law.
