"At a time of critical challenges, it is obvious that we need to develop the potential of our countries in the fields of transportation and energy," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said during a joint press conference with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Ankara, APA's Türkiye bureau reports.

"The Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway is one of the most concrete examples of this. To get the most out of this railway, restoration work must be completed quickly.

During my visit to the “Turkish Gate” of Nakhchivan last September, together with honorable Ilham Aliyev, we signed the protocol of intent regarding the Kars-Nakhchivan railway project with these thoughts in our mind.

Increasing the capacity of TANAP and delivering Caspian natural gas to Türkiye and Europe are among our top priorities in this regard. I would also like to remind you that with the Igdir-Nakhchivan natural gas pipeline project, for which we laid the foundation stone during my visit to Nakhchivan, we raised our energy cooperation to a new level," noted Turkish leader.
