Bulgaria's Minister of Energy, Rosen Hristov, stated that measures to protect the Turkish Stream pipeline will be discussed in Bulgaria after the Nord Stream 1 and 2 explosions.

After the EU Council meeting in Brussels, Rosen Hristov stated that Bulgaria insisted on a ceiling on the prices of all gas imports into the EU. "Our position is that if such a measure is imposed, it should be valid for all gas imports. Imposing frameworks only for Russian gas is a sanction, not an economic measure to stabilize the market," explained the minister.

As expected, EU energy ministers did not reach an agreement today on the issue of imposing a ceiling on natural gas prices, the BNR correspondent in Brussels, Angelina Piskova, reported.
