Romanian PM Ciucă talks gas, fertilizers with Egyptian officials
Romanian prime minister Nicolae Ciucă was received on Saturday in Cairo by his Egyptian counterpart, Mostafa Madbouly, with whom he discussed the economic relations between the two countries. Romania requests fertilizers and gas from Egypt, while Egypt seeks to import more cereals.
Romania also aims to meet its natural gas consumption needs using Egyptian liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals until it can extract the deep-sea gas from the Black Sea, according to statements made by the Romanian PM after his meeting in Cairo with another Egyptian official, minister of petroleum and mineral resources, Tarek El Molla.
"Diversifying natural gas resources will help enhance energy security for both Romania and Central and Eastern Europe," said Ciucă, cited by Digi24. "I discussed concrete ways to enhance our traditional relationships through joint energy projects with the Egyptian minister of petroleum and mineral resources, Tarek El Molla in Cairo," he added.
