TAP project is important not only for Italy but for Europe as well, Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta said at a press conference in Baku on Aug. 11.
"We have started good cooperation with Greek and Albanian governments, and of course, Turkey. I am glad to be here and thanks to Azerbaijan for the commercial and industrial choice it has made," Letta said.
The Italian PM further spoke on the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, noting that status quo is not an option.
"Italy strongly supports the activity of OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs. We are convinced that long-term conflicts serves nobody's interests," Letta noted.
The Prime Minister said that Italy will be a country really engaged in finding an international based solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
"It is impossible to find unilateral solutions to the Nagorno -Karabakh conflict. It is necessary to have an international based solution," Letta said.
He stressed that Italy will lead the European Union next year in the second semester. "We will work hard on finding new solutions at international level," Letta said.
