Meeting of TAE Working Group to Take Place in Baku
Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Babayeva / According to information provided by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of Azerbaijan, a meeting of the working group on the Caspian Underwater Segment of the Optical Cable Main - "Trans-Asia-Europe" (TAE) will take place in Baku between 18-21 April. The meeting will focus on the construction of TAE via the district of Siyazan ( Azerbaijan) and Aktau ( Kazakhstan). To date, construction work of all segments of the fiber-optic cable TAE from Shanghai to Frankfurt except the Caspian underwater section have been completed, that is why the information exchange via TAE Cable is possible only via the territories of Russia and Iran. If the project starts, Azerbaijan will become the key transit country in the region. The project will allow middle Asian countries to directly link with Turkey. At the same time Azerbaijan, Turkey, Georgia and other countries will have the possibility to establish a better connection to China.
