In a video posted on his official Facebook, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó announced that the second September fuel delivery had arrived in Paks. He said that the Russian manufacturer had made the delivery by air, this time on a slightly longer route than usual, using the Baltic and Northern European airspace.
The minister is traveling to Kazakhstan to attend the Organization of Turkic States energy ministerial meeting, as the current energy supply crisis makes it necessary to look for new partners.
The Organization of Turkic States includes countries with significant energy resources, such as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, as well as countries that are important transport routes. Turkey is an example, Szijjártó said.
He said that he was also holding separate talks with his Kazakh and Azeri counterparts on what new energy sources from the Caucasus or Central Asia could be considered in the medium or long term for the energy security for Europe, including Central Europe.
Szijjártó will then travel from Kazakhstan to Thailand for a UN event and bilateral talks.
