PM urges EU to support north-south gas corridor
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Hungary would like to acquire funds from the European Union's economic stimulus package, which is currently in the preparatory phase, to help the construction of a north-south natural gas corridor.
Speaking at a press conference following his meeting with the prime ministers of Visegrád Four countries and the Swiss head of state, Orbán said that failing to build the north-south gas pipeline over the past 25 years has been a mistake due to it's energy security implications.
It was Hungary's mistake as well as that of the European Union, which failed to mobilize sufficient resources for the project, Orbán said, adding that Hungary's goal is to see that the economic stimulus package includes investment projects that would enable the development of the energy corridor.
