BAKU, Azerbaijan, Jan.22
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR has dismissed the information about purchasing a bitumen plant in Armenia.
Armenian media reported that allegedly, SOCAR is in talks over purchasing a bitumen plant in this country with Georgia’s mediation.
Ibrahim Ahmadov, deputy head of the public relations and events department at Azerbaijan's state oil company SOCAR told Trend that such absurd statements are incompatible with the level of SOCAR.
“SOCAR is the global brand of Azerbaijan, the largest foreign investor in Turkey, the largest taxpayer in Azerbaijan and Georgia, a company operating in Europe, and a leading force in major international projects such as the Southern Gas Corridor. We don't need a bitumen plant in any province. We have no interests in Armenia at all,” he said.
