Hungarian Ambassador clearly opposes the Rosia Montana project

The Hungarian ambassador in Bucharest, Oskar Fuzes declared yesterday, in a meeting with the Romanian press, that Hungary opposes the Rosia Montana project. Budapest understands the decision belongs to Romania, but it will raise “some 300 questions” if the project starts, he added. Asked about Hungary’s opinion on the Rosia Montana project, Oskar Fuzes answered: “No way!” Hungary still has bitter memories about the environmental accident which occurred at Baia Mare, a few years ago. Hungarian Ambassador to Bucharest Fuzes Oszkar yesterday announced two important international events in which Romania will also take part next week. On February 24-26, the Energy Security Summit as well as a summit held in support of the EU strategy for the Danube region will take place in Budapest and Romanian PM Emil Boc will take part in both of them.

Fuzes Oszkar also talked about Hungary’s position regarding Nabucco South Stream, saying that Romania and Hungary positions are 100 per cent adequate and that there are 0% priorities for Nabucco. “The problem is not only the pipeline, its geo-political position, but it is who will put gas into it. I think that, if everything goes well, Azerbaijan will put the gas.”

After the Energy Security Summit is planned to take place the summit at the level of Prime Ministers, to strengthen the political commitment on the elaboration of the Danube Strategy.
