Baku, February 23, AZERTAC
“The Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) Advisory Council is of vital political meaning. Not only is the SGC a pure economic project and enjoys great interest, but every country attaches political significance to it,” Energy Minister of Azerbaijan Natig Aliyev has told AZERTAC.
“What makes us happy is that every year the number of countries, which participate in the SGC Advisory Council, increases. This is indicative of the growing interest in Azerbaijan and the project. The number of our partners, supporters and friends increases day by day.”
Aliyev said that the Advisory Council is a platform and Azerbaijan uses it. “The visit of the US Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Diplomacy Robin Dunnigan to Baku shows that the White House did not change its attitude towards Azerbaijan and the SGC project.”
“US ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta has repeatedly emphasized that the US will always support Azerbaijan in the SGC project because it is of pivotal significance not only to Azerbaijan, but also to Europe, to the USA and to global energy security. At the same time, the UK`s Prime Ministerial Trade Envoy to Azerbaijan Baroness Nicholson is also attending the meeting of the SGC Advisory Council. This is an important fact,” added Aliyev.
