The United States and Bulgaria will continue to work towards finding medium and long-term solutions to diversify gas supply sources, US Ambassador to Bulgaria, Herro Mustafa, said for Nova TV. In her words, during Premier Kiril Petkov’s recent visit to the United States, Sofia and Washington worked together to ensure two emergency supplies of liquefied natural gas for Bulgaria at good prices.

 "If a year ago Bulgaria had completed the gas interconnector with Greece, it would not be in the current situation," said Herro Mustafa. According to her, Bulgaria will diversify its energy sources with liquefied natural gas from the United States and other countries. 

Regarding Bulgaria’s veto on the EU talks with Skopje, Ambassador Mustafa said that the two countries should hold a dialogue without ultimatums, because North Macedonia’s accession to the European Union would enhance regional security.
