Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is slated to sign an agreement on joining a network delivering electricity from Azerbaijan to Hungary via Georgia and Romania, the prime minister’s press chief said on Sunday evening.
The signing will take place on December 17 in Bucharest, Bertalan Havasi said, confirming Romanian press reports.
In August, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said Hungary would join the project so that it can receive European Union funding, which is conditional on at least two member states participating. The network would deliver green electricity through Georgia, under the Black Sea to Romania and Hungary, which could use some of the energy and also use the grid to transfer its own, he said in a Facebook post.
