Position of the European Commission on the issue of the pipeline "South Stream" and currently remains unchanged. As stated by the representative of the Vice-President of the European Commission Günther Oettinger Sabine Berger, to date, this project is not a priority for the European organization.

"On this issue, I can only repeat that today "South Stream" for us is not a priority. For us it is important to diversify supply routes. For example, opening the Southern Corridor to the European market, "- commented on the situation of the European Commission Sabine Berger.

In addition Sabine Berger noted that for the European Commission is important that on the territory of the member countries of the European Union was respected European law.

"For this reason we believe that the" South Stream ", as well as other infrastructure projects must meet European Union legislation," - said the representative of the European Commission Sabine Berger.

Recall that on June 2 the European Union offered Bulgaria to suspend the construction of "South Stream".
