After this, no country will pursue the policy of exporting Azerbaijani oil abroad, Ali Hasanov, the head of the social-political department of the Presidents office, told journalists, Trend reports.
Speaking about the opening ceremony of Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline in Turkey, He touched upon the political importance of the project. According to Hasanov, the main importance of BTC is that the question of delivering the hydrocarbon reserves of Caspian to the world market fount its solution.
After this, no country will be able to implement a policy for exporting Azerbaijani oil abroad. Azerbaijan will itself deliver its oil to the world market through several routes, sell with the world prices and direct the revenues towards ensuring the needs of its people. The second importance of BTC is that today Azerbaijan, as one of the leading oil countries, turns into a country assuming a great importance before increasing world demand for energy. Today, the demand for oil and gas in Europe increases and the oil countries face difficulties in ensuring these demands. The participation of Azerbaijan in this market further raises the role of Azerbaijan in the world. And it means that a country playing an important role in ensuring the world needs takes an important place in the world policy, Hasanov told.
Answering the questions of journalists, Hasanov noted that Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev has been invited to Russia for an unofficial visit.
