Azerbaijan, Baku, April 6 / Trend, A.Taghiyeva /
Turkey, like Azerbaijan makes every effort for implementation of TAP gas project, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told journalists, the Zaman newspaper reported on Friday.
"Turkey is ready to use its full potential for implementation of TAP project," Erdogan said.
He said after the implementation of the project on the Turkish territory the next step will be its implementation in Italy. Its transportation to Albania may be the next phase after transporting gas to Italy.
TAP is one of the projects of the Southern Gas Corridor, designed to transport gas from the Caspian region via Greece and Albania and across the Adriatic Sea to southern Italy and further into Western Europe. Gas produced within the second phase of the Azerbaijani gas condensate field Shah Deniz is regarded as the main source for TAP.
