Rome, April 30, AZERTAC

The Italian government has approved the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), intended to bring gas from Azerbaijan to Europe, after the project was held up by administrative delays, the governor of the southern region of Puglia said on Wednesday.

Puglia regional governor Nichi Vendola told reporters that the government had overruled objections from his regional government, which had opposed allowing a landing point near the town of Melendugno for environmental reasons.

"Cabinet has approved the TAP project with a landing point at Melendugno," Vendola said after a cabinet meeting which he attended to express his opposition to the project.
