Baku. Mubariz Aslanov – APA-Economics. Today, the Vice-Speaker of Milli Majlis, Chairman of Natural Resources, Energy and Ecology Committee Valeh Alesgerov accused several members of European Parliament of illiteracy related with Nabucco Project at the committee for energy security within the framework of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly.

According to APA-Economics, Alesgerov protested against statements of MEPs related with this project: “Recently, several European politicians and MEPs say that the project was not realized, because Azerbaijan did not guarantee transportation of 30 bcm via Nabucco per year. This is not right. Because, transportation of Azeri gas was not on agenda in the development of this project. That’s why it is illiteracy to accuse Azerbaijan in this issue”.

“There is no risk for gas export in Caspian basin. Azerbaijan is fully ready for realization of Nabucco project. It just needs political support from Europe. In fact, main reason of delay of this project is connected with that the European politicians, deputies and some experts approached the issue from the opposite side. Insufficiency of political support from the sides that we expected caused delay of this issue. It clearly needs political support”, he added.

Alesgerov stated that Azerbaijan was ready for energy export to Europe at a high level: “Launch of Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan is an obvious example to it”.
