Mihajlovic pointed out that the two countries are committed to connecting the region, that they are already doing that in traffic, but it is necessary to do that in energy as well.
"Today we exchanged information about the currently most important project of our two countries, which is of great importance because it will enable us to be even more transit countries, to diversify suppliers and roads and will enable us competition and more favourable gas prices," Mihajlovic said.
Bulgaria has completed the tender procedure, and Serbia will announce a public invitation next week. I expect to sign a contract in the summer, and in May 2022 to have an operational gas pipeline, said the Deputy Prime Minister.
Mihajlovic previously talked with Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria Boyko Borisov about the cooperation between the two countries in the field of energy and the construction of the Serbia-Bulgaria gas interconnection.
Borisov pointed out that Serbia and Bulgaria are building a lot together and that they have never had such close relations, and that they will continue to maintain friendship and work together.
