BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 31. Azerbaijan’s role as a reliable energy partner is important in the global energy landscape, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said, Trend reports.
He made the remark to the participants of the Baku Energy Week, which was read out by UK Prime Minister's Trade Envoy in Azerbaijan, Baroness Emma Nicholson, during the opening ceremony of the event.
"Azerbaijan’s commitment to increase its natural gas supplies to Europe by 20 billion cubic meters by 2027 is already contributing to Europe’s energy security. Diversity of supply is key to ending Russia’s use of energy as a geopolitical weapon.
I also applaud your efforts to develop Azerbaijan’s huge renewable energy potential and become a green energy exporter. Your plans to expand cooperation on energy transition with European partners will be key to achieving these goals. The establishment of the first Green Energy Advisory Council of the Southern Gas Corridor and the Black Sea Submarine cable project, which aims to transfer renewable electricity from Azerbaijan to Europe, are particularly promising," the statement reads.
