The United States discussed joint efforts on European energy security and advanced the clean energy transition in Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria during the visit of Geoffrey Pyatt, the Department of State’s Bureau of Energy Resources new Assistant Secretary, to Istanbul, Bucharest and Sofia on October 10-14. Pyatt reiterated the US commitment to European energy security and pledged to work with US partners
