Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said on Wednesday that he has signed important agreements with Romanian Energy Minister Sebastian Burduja that will allow Hungary to continue to rely on Romania’s cooperation in guaranteeing the country’s energy security. Minister Szijjártó said on Facebook that he and Burduja had agreed to increase the capacity of the interconnectors between their countries’ gas networks so that Hungary could access as much of the gas extracted from the Black Sea gas fields as possible. Hungary and Romania will also begin preparations to link their electricity grids, Minister Szijjártó said. Meanwhile, the minister said Burduja had assured him that Hungary could continue to transport Russian nuclear fuel for its Paks plant through Romania.
