The Bulgarian State is going to demand from Moscow economic profits in order to confirm its commitment for joint energy projects.

The declaration was made Tuesday by Bulgaria's Economy, Energy and Tourism Minister, Traicho Traikov.

Bulgaria is also going to further insist that the country's participation in the Russian projects is in compliance with the European Union plans for boasting the security of supplies.

The new cabinet initiated a review and new analysis of the plans to built a second Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in the Danube town of Belene, of Bulgaria's participation in the "South Stream" gas line and and the "Burgas-Alexandroupulis" oil line. They also stated their desire to drive Bulgaria closer to the EU not to Russia, as the former government did.
