The possible renewal of negotiations with "Gazprom" will depend on estimates that are being prepared at the moment, caretaker Minister of Energy Rosen Hristov said. "Whether we would buy gas from Gazprom depends on whether the country's needs could be met by other suppliers," he said. We are currently waiting for the inter-system gas connection with Greece in order to be sure that it will be put into operation on October 1.

According to the minister, the needed quantities of natural gas for September have already been secured and negotiations are underway with several companies, including an American supplier of liquefied gas, for October, November and December.

Meanwhile, leader of the BSP and former Minister of Economy Kornelia Ninova called for immediate negotiations with "Gazprom"  in order to avoid bankruptcies and to ensure that people did not suffer in the coming winter.
