Sofia and Belgrade will step up efforts to build the interconnector pipeline linking the two gas grids, ministers from the two countries have announced.
A working group will be set up by the end of December to draft a timetable and to elaborate on the project's more specific parameters, Bulgaria's Economy Minister Bozhidar Lukarski and Serbia's Mining and Energy Minister Aleksandar Antic agreed while meeting in Belgrade on Tuesday.
A Bulgarian delegation is currently in the Serbian capital for the third annual meeting between China and countries from Central and Eastern Europe. Alongside Bozhidar Lukarski it includes Regional Development Minister Lilyana Pavlova.
