“Croatia Natural Gas Independent In 50 Years”

Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos believes Croatia will become independent in terms of natural gas sources in the next fifty years. Avramopoulos, who was in Zagreb on Friday meeting with his Croatian counterpart Vesna Pusic, said that the Adriatic-Ionian project, which would see a potential Trans-Adriatic gas pipeline (TAP) pass through Croatia, would help hugely Croatia’s development as a nation.

“Croatia would, under this project, after fifty years become independent in terms of sources of natural gas. It’s a great thing for the progress of your country, “said Avramopoulos.

Early this year, Greece, Albania and Italy gave the go-ahead for the construction of a 800-kilometre-long TAP which would facilitate the delivery of gas supplies from the Caspian region to Europe and could pass through Croatia. Pusic said that Croatia was “definitely very interested in that project”.
