Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová and her Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orbán will sign an international agreement on cross-border gas connections on Friday, January 28, in Bratislava, the TASR newswire reported, citing Radičová’s spokesman Rado Baťo.
The signing is one of the items on the itinerary for Orbán’s official visit to Slovakia. The project to connect the Slovak and Hungarian gas distribution networks is part of a broader plan comprising several individual, interlinked projects. The north-south corridor is designed to connect gas terminals in Poland and Croatia, and its pipelines will traverse all V4 countries, including Slovakia and Hungary.
