BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 31.We are very proud that the European Union high-ranking officials called Azerbaijan a reliable partner, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the official opening ceremony of the 28th International "Oil and Gas of the Caspian Sea" Exhibition and the 11th Caspian International "Energy and Green Energy" Exhibition at the Baku Expo Center, Trend reports.
"Energy security is not only diversification of routes - it is diversification of sources. Now, I think everybody clearly sees that. In our case, it is both diversification of routes, diversification of sources and also very committed teamwork between companies, countries, international financial institutions.
So, we really work as a team because we have one target - how to strengthen energy security, how to help each other to overcome difficulties, whether they are situative difficulties or can be difficulties of strategic origin. Of course, we are very proud that the European Union high-ranking officials called Azerbaijan a reliable partner, which is true, and call Azerbaijan a Pan-European gas supplier, which also becomes true," President Ilham Aliyev said.
