Energy Ministers of Bulgaria, Russia to Discuss South Stream over Phone

Bulgaria and Russia's energy ministers are to discuss South Stream over the telephone on Friday, Bulgarian officials say.
The phone call has been proposed by Economy Minister Bozhidar Lukarski and Energy Minister Temenuzhka Petkova, according to Lukarski's Chief of Staff Filip Kirev. 
Kirev told Darik Radio a visit to Moscow had been initially scheduled, but Russia's Energy Minister Alexander Novak had to cancel it due to "urgent" matters. 
Russian officials have insisted the South Stream project, which was to carry gas to Europe via Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary, is now considered to be over.
Earlier, Russian-language media outlets had reported that Sofia was planning to send a governmental delegation to Moscow for talks over the project.
