BUDAPEST - Serbian Minister of Mining and Energy Aleksandar Antic and Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto signed on Friday in Budapest an agreement on cooperation in construction of a gas pipeline that will run across the Serbia-Hungary border.

"Today, we signed an agreement that will enable two gas pipelines (an extension of the TurkStream pipeline) to meet. We have defined an entire set of activities that will make it possible for the interconnection to be built and put into operation," Antic said after signing the agreement.

Intensive works are underway on three sections in Serbia and the trunk pipeline from the Bulgarian to the Hungarian border will be completed by mid-December, Antic said.

"Significant quantities of pipes have already arrived in Serbia and have been taken out to the route and dozens of kilometres of pipes have already been laid and welded together," Antic said.
