“The notion of "Middle Corridor" is a very serious proposition,” Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, Minister of State for Europe and North America of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Leo Docherty said in an interview with APA.

“It is clear to us that a greater degree of connectivity right across the South Caucus is a very sensible thing. Of course, that connectivity already exists, and that is why Azerbaijan is such an important supplier of European energy and has been for many, many years and of course, that is how the British involvement in Azerbaijan came about because of the hugely important role it plays as an energy supplier to Europe. I think it is definitely the case that Azerbaijan and the South Caucasus as a bridge between Central Asia and Europe has a hugely important role to play. And if we can collectively improve infrastructure and connectivity, whether that means pipelines or electricity cables, or improve trade and infrastructure routes, all regions stand to benefit. The notion of "Middle Corridor" is a very serious proposition that I think all countries are interested in," the Minister added.
