Amos Hochstein stated that US will continue its efforts towards the implementation of the "Southern Gas Corridor" project.
“It is important for Azerbaijan, at the same time, it is one of the projects to ensure energy and political security in Europe. US considers this project as strategic as Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan”, he added.
