The President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic congratulated Bulgaria and Greece on the successful completion of the Greece-Bulgaria gas interconnector at the ceremony for its official launch in Sofia.

In Aleksandar Vucic’s words, at the beginning no one believed how important it would prove to be. “We talked about it as some kind of luxury which we do not actually need all that much, but the project turned out to be very important to Serbia as well,” he said, and added that the construction of the interconnector between Serbia and Bulgaria has already begun and that he hopes it will be completed on both sides, so that a ceremony such as this can take place in Serbia as well in 2023.

Aleksandar Vucic thanked the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, who was among the participants in the ceremony, for being “nice”, for “helping a lot by talking about the interconnector between Serbia and Bulgaria”, and for “the planning of the interconnector between the Republic of North Macedonia and Serbia.” This, Vucic said, will mean new infrastructure for Serbia, for the Western Balkans. Aleksandar Vucic stated further, that without Ilham Aliyev it would not have been easy to rely on the diversification of gas deliveries.
