Bulgaria will export electricity to North Macedonia. This was understood after a meeting between acting Prime Minister Galab Donev and Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski, who is on a one-day visit to Sofia.

“We very quickly responded to the appeal for help from North Macedonia to solve the challenges facing the country in the energy sector. We discussed specific opportunities for electricity and natural gas transmission – both for the needs of industry and for domestic consumers,” Donev said during a joint briefing with Kovacevski.

It is about 200 megawatt-hours of basic uniform electricity for the period until March 31, 2023.

We agreed to create a joint working group of representatives of Bulgaria and North Macedonia on the technical parameters for electricity transmission and supply and storage of natural gas, said Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski.

We are trying to find a solution for the last quarter of the year and for the first quarter of next year, Kovacevski also said.

Agreements will also be reached for the storage of natural gas in “Chiren” so that RS Macedonia can benefit from its participation in the terminal in Alexandroupolis.
In this way, supplies of liquefied gas will be able to be more balanced without the country experiencing additional difficulties, the Bulgarian Prime Minister said.

The working group will start work on Wednesday, Prime Minister Kovacevski added.

Donev and Kovachevski also agreed on deepening mutual cooperation in all areas of mutual interest, as well as all agreements on the protocols of the Interdepartmental Commission.

The two prime ministers talked privately, after which an extended meeting of the two delegations took place.

After the press conference with Donev, Kovachevski also went to a meeting with President Rumen Radev.

“I want to share that despite the violent political passions we have witnessed in recent months, the relations between our two brotherly countries rest on a solid foundation that is beyond any political conjuncture,” said Radev.
