Kaladze: East-West Energy Corridor begins strategic and successful cooperation with Baku
The Vice Prime Minister of Georgia and Minister of Energy, Kakha Kaladze, noted the importance of the East-West Energy Corridor intended for export of Azerbaijani oil to the global markets.
Georgia and Azerbaijan mark the 20th anniversary of the East-West Energy Corridor, the base of which was laid by Baku-Supsa oil pipeline. The Azerbaijan Prime Minister Artur Rasizade and Energy Minister Natig Aliyev came to Tbilisi for that purpose.
"This is not just an investment worth $550 million. It was the beginning of a strategic and successful cooperation between Georgia and Azerbaijan, which intensifies from year to year," Trend cited him as saying.
This agreement helped to return Georgia a role of a transit country, the deputy prime minister said.
