Deputy PM Zaharieva: There Is No Agreement On South Stream Transit Fees

As of now there is no signed agreement for the transit fees from the South Stream gas pipeline, Bulgaria's caretaker deputy PM Ekaterina Zaharieva told the bTV national channel.
“No matter how much South Stream would cost, we don't know if it will be profitable, as we don't know what the benefits for us will be”, she said in a bTV talk show on Friday. 
The statement of Zaharieva, who is a deputy PM in charge of regional development and investment planning, refutes the claims of the previous energy minister Dragomir Stoinev who was saying that Bulgaria got “the best possible financial conditions” and Bulgaria's best interests were “fully protected”. 
According to Zaharieva, the only clear benefit from South Stream so far was the possible diversification of gas deliveries, but only after the reverse-flow interconnections with Greece, Turkey and Romania are completed.
