Baku, March 20, AZERTAC
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has said the implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor will ensure long-term and sustainable development of the country and protect its political and economic interests. The head of state described the Southern Gas Corridor as a historic project, as he addressed a message of congratulation to the people of Azerbaijan on the occasion of Novruz.
“Also in May, another major project was commissioned. We celebrated the opening of the Alat international trade seaport. The launch of this port and of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway in 2017 turned Azerbaijan into an important international transport center in Eurasia.”
“Today we are giving a successful impetus to the activities of the East-West and North-South corridors. Azerbaijan is successfully involved in both projects. I can say that more than 10 countries participate in these projects, but only one country, Azerbaijan, takes an active part in the North-South and East-West transport corridors. We are the author of many initiatives,” the President said.
