It’s not by chance that Armenia launched a military operation against Azerbaijan three months before the start of Azerbaijani gas supplies to Europe. ” Report informs, Vice President for Investment and Marketing at SOCAR Elshad Nassirov said in the online discussions of the Caspian Political Center on the impact of COVID-19 on the energy sector.
“Now the operations are taking place, not in Nagorno-Karabakh, recognized by all international organizations and countries as Azerbaijan’s territory, but on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. After the meeting, I invite everyone to look at a map of the region. You will observe that the entire infrastructure for the supply of Azerbaijan’s energy resources to Western countries and the global market is located in this region. Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, the Southern Gas Corridor, the Baku-Supsa pipeline, the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, the Baku-Tbilisi highway are close to the place of the outbreak of hostilities from Armenia. I want to use this opportunity to invite our colleagues in Washington and elsewhere to think about how fragile the Ganja corridor and the Trans-Caspian region are and how to provide military and physical security to the corridor that provides energy security to Europe,” E. Nasirov said.
