At the ministerial meeting of the Advisory Council of the Southern Gas Corridor in Azerbaijan, Djedovic pointed out that the first deliveries of gas through this pipeline are expected at the beginning of 2024, which also depends on the speed of commercial negotiations of all involved parties.
She underlined that Serbia and Azerbaijan have better and better bilateral relations, and that an important expression of those relations is cooperation in the field of energy.
The construction of gas interconnections and better connections with neighbours opens up space for Serbia to improve not only its energy security, but also to be a transit country through which Azerbaijani gas will reach other countries in the region and the EU, noted Djedovic.
Today in Baku, the Minister spoke with Minister of Energy of Romania Virgil Popescu about bilateral cooperation in the field of energy, including cooperation in connection with HPP Djerdap and potential projects, development of transmission systems and opportunities for gas interconnections.
The Advisory Council of the Southern Gas Corridor gathers ministers and representatives of relevant ministries from countries connected by gas pipelines that connect Europe and the Caspian region, high representatives of the European Union, but also representatives of other countries that are interested in participating in this cooperation mechanism.
