Greece, Other Nations Send Letter to EU over Capping Gas Prices

September 26, 2022

BRUSSELS – Greece, along with Italy, Belgium and Poland, has sent a letter to the European Commission ahead of a meeting by EU energy ministers on Friday, regarding a proposed cap on natural gas prices.

According to points on a draft seen by the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, it notes that the cap can be designed in such a way as to ensure security of supply and free flow in Europe, while at the same time meeting the common goal of reducing demand for natural gas. So far, 11 countries are in favour.

In addition to the four EU member-states that sent the letter (which were in favour of coordination and adopting a common line), support has been expressed by Romania, Malta and others, though with certain modifications. Discussion on the proposals are still ongoing and there may be changes.
