"Although, given its geographical location, the Netherlands is not connected to the Southern Gas Corridor, we always have considered it geopolitically important to seek energy security by diversifying European imports of oil and gas. In that sense, we see the completion next year of the Southern Gas Corridor as an important milestone," said the ministry.

Although in the beginning only about 5 percent of the European gas imports will flow through the Southern Gas Corridor, there is obviously the potential for a substantial increase of that, said the Dutch Foreign Ministry.
