Hungary lobbying with other EU members for Nabucco

The foreign ministers of Hungary, Austria, Romania and Bulgaria have approached leaders of the European Union in a letter to secure support for the Nabucco gas pipeline project, European diplomatic sources told MTI on Monday. Hungary's János Martonyi and his colleagues wrote their letter on the sidelines of a meeting of European foreign ministers in Luxembourg, addressed to European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger. Signatories to the document argued that Nabucco was instrumental in diversifying energy sources for the community's eastern region. The Nabucco pipeline is to bring gas from Central Asia to Europe, reducing the region's energy dependence on Russia.
