By Anakhanum Khidayatova, Laman Zeynalova – Trend:
Washington will continue the support for implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor project despite the political changes in Europe and the US, said Amos Hochstein, special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs at the US Department of State.
Addressing a press conference in Baku Dec. 15, Hochstein said Washington will go on supporting the SGC project’s implementation in the same way as once it supported and realized the importance of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline.
“The Unites States is closely working with Azerbaijan and its allies to ensure that the Southern Gas Corridor project is completed and is successful,” he said.
“SGC is important not only for Azerbaijan, but also critical for energy and political security of Europe,” added Hochstein.
