Orban’s spokesman, Bertalan Havasi, said that under the agreement, Azerbaijan’s electricity will reach Hungary via Georgia and Romania via the line that will pass under the Black Sea.
In August, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto stated that the project could be completed within 3 or 4 years.
He said the agreement would be a major step in relation to the goals of energy diversification and carbon neutrality.
