EU Energy Ministers to Discuss South Stream on Tuesday

The EU's Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council is set to meet in Brussels on Tuesday, with the latest developments around the South Stream pipeline topping the agenda.
A proposal to create an internal energy market to connect all electricity and gas grids within the bloc will also be under discussion. 
Various EU member states were involved in South Stream, a project designed to carry gas to Italy via Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary and Austria.
But Russian President Vladimir Putin scrapped the project while in Ankara last week, saying the pipes would go to Turkey instead.
Bulgarian Deputy PM Tomislav Donchev and Energy Minister Temenuzhka Petkova are due to represent Sofia in the meeting.
On Monday Prime Minister Boyko Borisov promptly delivered a speech in Parliament to announce Bulgaria would insist that South Stream be continued under the EU rules.
