“In our view, there is an opportunity, which comes along every few generations, to create a trade corridor from Central Asia to the Mediterranean Sea. This is only possible if there is peace between Azerbaijan and Armenia. This will create new lines of industry along the corridor. This can happen now. In a few years, it may not be as important as it is now… So now is the time to do it,” O’Brien said.
