South Stream Project to Top Agenda of Borisov-Juncker Talks
Thursday, 04 December 2014
Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov is set to visit Brussels on Thursday, December 4, to meet EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
The South Stream gas pipeline project, which Moscow is renouncing according to a statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin, will be at the core of their discussions, Juncker was quoted by the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) as saying.
Juncker has refused to comment on the matter, but the Commission announced on Tuesday it was determined to continue talks on South Stream with member states.
Prior to his meeting with Borisov, Juncker will have to hold talks with some of the Commissioners.
"I will have a say on that matter after these talks and [Borisov's] visit," he was quoted as explaining by public broadcaster BNR.
