BAKU, Azerbaijan, February 3. Doubling gas supplies to Europe by 2027 is doable, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the 9th Southern Gas Corridor Advisory Council Ministerial Meeting and the 1st Ministerial Meeting of the first Green Energy Advisory Council in Baku, Trend reports.
"There have been several important milestones last year, which demonstrates our joint commitment to energy security. First of all, I’d like to mention the important document, which was signed here in Baku between President of the European Commission Madame Ursula von der Leyen and myself on strategic partnership in the field of energy which was signed last July and which actually is a clear roadmap for our future plans. So, we plan by 2027 to double our gas export to Europe and this is doable, because we have resources. We have mutual political will, and we have a very high level of mutual trust. So, one of the important factors of successful implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor project, apart from technical and sometimes political issues to be resolved, is the high level of mutual trust and I would even call it a mutual solidarity. When we immediately are seeing that someone is in need, we are trying to support. I think this is a good spirit of partnership and should be a guidance for us in our future endeavors. Especially now, when along with the Southern Gas Corridor Advisory Council, we will have today the first Advisory Council on green energy," President Ilham Aliyev said.
