MOSCOW -- A working meeting between Alexey Miller, chairman of the Gazprom management committee, and Peter Szijjarto, minister of foreign affairs and trade of Hungary, took place today at the Energy Efficiency and Energy Development International Forum 'Russian Energy Week' in Moscow.

The meeting addressed bilateral cooperation, including Russian gas exports to Hungary and gas transit to third countries. It was noted that in the first nine months of 2017 Gazprom had supplied to Hungary 5.5 Bcmg, an increase of 26.9%, or 1.2 Bcm, against the January-September period of 2016.
