“Armenia attacked the Tovuz region of Azerbaijan in July this year. Tovuz region is a part of Azerbaijan’s energy corridor – the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipelines, as well as the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway,” Zaur Gahramanov, CEO of SOCAR Turkey, the Turkish subsidiary of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR), said in an interview with Turkish television.

According to him, their goal is to threaten the energy corridor: “Today’s struggle in Karabakh is a war that the Azerbaijani people have been waiting for 30 years. As Azerbaijan, we are right in this war.”

Gahramanov thanked Turkey to support Azerbaijan in the war of rights: “It is a great pleasure that Turkey stands by Azerbaijan in this conflict. Karabakh is Azerbaijan, and we will win. Victory will be ours.”
