By Messenger Staff
Monday, July 12Azerbaijan is interested in implementing and participating in the PanArabic Gas Pipeline Project, Azeri Industry and Energy Minister Natik Alyev stated while meeting his Egyptian counterpart on July 7. Under this plan Azeri gas could be transported to Syria, Jordan and then presumably to Egypt via Turkey.
An agreement signed at the beginning of June created the preconditions for transporting Azeri gas to Arab countries. The Syrian leadership has already expressed its readiness to buy a certain amount of Azeri gas as soon as construction of the pipeline connecting Turkey and Syria is finished.
