Hungary would choose Nabucco pipeline if real alternative

Jun 22, 2007 02:00 AM

If Nabucco pipeline becomes a real alternative, Hungary will choose Nabucco, because it provides an alternative energy source, Minister of Economy Janos Koka said in his talks in Washington. Koka met Matthew Bryza, undersecretary of state, responsible for European affairs, and talked about Hungary's energy policy and bilateral trade issues.
“Hungary would like two alternatives, and one of them should be Nabucco. If that happens, Hungary will choose Nabucco, because it would diversify the energy sources Hungary can use," the minister said.

Hungary is an ally of the United States but has intense business and political relations with other countries, too, among them Russia.
“But this can not be in conflict with our relationship to our allies," he said.

Koka acknowledged, that Washington would like Hungary to decrease its dependency on Russia, but the two countries agree on this.
“If there is an opportunity to decrease Hungary's dependency on Russian energy supply, Hungary will do so.I did not feel any criticism of Hungary in Washington," he said.
