Lithuanian President Urges Europe to Take More Efficient Steps to Ensure Energy Security
Azerbaijan, Baku, 14 November / Trend corr. S.Aliyev/ "Europe's steps to ensure energy security must be more efficient and rapid," Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus said at the 4th energy summit in Baku on 14 November.
"Energy security issues require immediate actions, therefore, very important rather than very big steps must be taken," said Adamkus.
According to the Lithuanian President, a European Union Special Representative should be appointed to take part in designing of the initiative on implementation of the Odessa-Brody project.
"Such gas pipeline projects as Nabucco and Turkey-Greece-Italy are more economically efficient to ensure Europe's energy security than others [projects]," said Adamkus.
" Azerbaijan is important for this process and is a strategic partner," he said.
Those pipelines may be filled by the Caspian and Iraqi gas, he said.
"That will reduce the influence of other suppliers," Lithuanian President said.
