Romania to advocate for unitary approach Europewide of natural gas, electricity supply

Published on

Spokesperson for the Romanian government Dan Carbunaru said on Thursday that Energy Minister Virgil Popescu will attend a meeting of the EU Energy Council in Brussels where he will advocate for „a unitary Europewide approach” to secure the supply of natural gas and electricity for all European citizens at a price „that can be paid”, according to Agerpres.

„The prime minister of Romania announced yesterday that today, during the government sitting, he will discuss the mandate with the Minister of Energy. I can offer you some parts without going into details, because no state presents its own elements before having completed negotiations, because we are dealing with a process based on consensus from a decision-making perspective in the EU Energy Council. Since we need to have predictability and transparency, I can tell you that Minister Virgil Popescu, as the representative of the government of Romania in the EU Energy Council, will advocate for a unitary approach at the European level, so that the supply of gas and electricity may be secured for all European citizens, including Romanian citizens, at a price that can be paid,” Carbunaru told a news conference at the Government House.

He added that the government will support the need to combat price gouging and unjustified price fluctuations.
