Bulgaria’s Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov has welcomed the US' consistent support for key projects for the diversification of sources and routes for the supply of energy resources in Bulgaria and the region.
Daniel Mitov, on a working visit to Washington, has met with U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz to discuss the progress in the construction of natural gas interconnectors with Bulgaria’s neighbours, according to a statement released by the foreign ministry in Sofia on Friday.
The meeting took place on Thursday and marked the start of Mitov's visit.
An emphasis was placed on the gas interconnector with Greece and the Bulgarian government's plans to participate in the construction of a liquefied natural gas terminal near the Greek Aegean port of Alexandroupolis.
Daniel Mitov has also outlined the measures Bulgaria is taking to modernize its gas transmission infrastructure, the expansion of the gas storage facility in Chiren, as well as the plans to build a natural gas distribution centre in the country.
Ernest Moniz declared a commitment to deepen cooperation with Bulgaria and continue with the joint efforts for diversification of energy sources and routes, according to the statement.
Daniel Mitov also met with U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman, with whom he discussed bilateral trade and economic cooperation and the opportunities to enhance commercial exchange and investment cooperation.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement negotiations were also a subject of discussion. The US chief negotiator Ambassador Froman and Minister Mitov expressed hope that the TTIP talks and negotiations will be concluded soon.
