The head of state noted that Turkish companies are successfully operating in Azerbaijan and carrying out projects worth of $10 billion. He said the implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor project will deepen cooperation in the energy sector.

“We are entering into multilateral cooperation. Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia and other participants of the Southern Gas Corridor project should carry out joint activities. Baku will host the first meeting of the Advisory Council of the Southern Gas Corridor next month, and specific, accurate recommendations on the implementation of the project will be made. Three years ago, I and my dear brother Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed TANAP project, which is a “backbone” of the Southern Gas Corridor project. Our decision has today become a very big project of the world. The Southern Gas Corridor and exploitation of "Shah Deniz" are now the largest infrastructure project of Europe. $45 billion will be invested in this project,” he stated.

President Aliyev stressed that Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway and other projects will be implemented in a timely manner.

“Every issue discussed today is a giant project. TANAP, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway and other projects are of strategic importance; Turkey and Azerbaijan play a key role in these strategic projects. I am sure that all of these projects will be implemented as scheduled”, the president said.

The head of state mentioned that today Turkish-Azerbaijani unity and cooperation is an important factor on a global scale and this cannot be denied.

“Turkey and Azerbaijan are developing even during the crisis years, people's well-being is improving, our role in the world is growing and our international positions are strengthening. This allows us to say that Turkey and Azerbaijan will develop in the coming years as well, and we will see further progress,” he completed.
