South Stream 'Could Be Revisited' after Bulgaria Election - Hungary FM

Hungary's Foreign Minister has argued the abandoned South Stream gas pipeline project could be revisited following the early election in Bulgaria next month.
RIA Novosti quotes Peter Szijjarto as saying: "All these countries in the Western Balkans and Central Europe, we have the interest of revitalizing South Stream."
Szijjarto has opined one should wait until the election to "see their position". 
He has recalled that Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orbán discussed a possible South Stream revival as Russian President Vladimir Putin was visiting Budapest earlier this year. "[He] raised the issue, saying we really want the project to be revived."
Bulgaria's caretaker government has not commented on the remarks of Szijjarto.
