There are grounds for holding negotiations with Gazprom in order for Bulgaria to receive better conditions for the purchase of natural gas, chairman of the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission Ivan Ivanov said in parliament. In comparison to other European countries, Bulgaria could request new negotiations and get a better price, he said.

MP Martin Dimitrov of "Democratic Bulgaria" pointed out that Bulgaria would have better positions in negotiating with the Russian giant, if the interconnector with Greece through Makaza was already completed.

Ivan Ivanov recalled that the project had been delayed by 5 or 6 years and expressed doubts that the gas link would be completed by the end of 2021.
