The construction of the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline suits the interests of both Greece and Bulgaria, Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis said in an interview with local media.
“During the election campaign the new government of Bulgaria sent negative signals in reference to the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline. The Mayor of Burgas declared himself to be against, but in Greece as well as in Bulgaria, the tone of the election statements does not answer the need of realization of the signed agreements”, Bakoyannis said.
“The impression that the new government of Bulgaria makes and the first signals in this area speak that the government is to follow the agreements on the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline, which suit the interests of both Bulgaria and Greece”, Bakoyannis added.
“Therefore, I think that the criterion, which will finally outweigh, will favor the society and our citizens”, the Greek Foreign Minister emphasized.
The realization of the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project continues and will continue, Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis said on Sunday.
