“I think that the visit of Minister of Armed Forces of Britain to Azerbaijan was a very positive visit,” British ambassador to Azerbaijan James Sharp told APA.

The diplomat noted that issue of stability in oil and gas supply, gas transportation to Moldova, as well as the situation around Ukraine were discussed at the meetings held by British minister in Azerbaijan.

“You see changes at global level in oil and gas prices. Azerbaijan supplies gas to Europe, there are opportunities to increase its volume,” the ambassador brought to attention.

According to him, this also can both reduce gas dependence on Russia and stabilize prices,

“Our discussions were very useful and I am sure that our dialogue will continue. Britain is very interested in cooperation and dialogue with Azerbaijan,” Sharp noted.
