Hungary signs deal with Gazprom for 5.8M cubic metres of natural gas


Hungary says it has signed a deal with Russian energy giant Gazprom for 5.8 million cubic metres of extra natural gas.

Zoltan Kovacs, international spokesman for Hungary's government, said it would be on top of the country's current supplies.

"Hungary’s energy supply is safe," he added.


Hungary's foreign affairs minister also announced the deal with Gazprom on Facebook during a break from his meeting with other EU ministers.

Péter Szijjártó specified that in September and October, Gazprom will deliver a maximum of 5.8 million cubic meters more natural gas per day to Hungary via Serbia than what was specified in its long-term contract.
