By Huseyn Hasanov- Trend:
Export of energy resources to Europe is one of priorities of Turkmenistan's international strategy, said the the Turkmen government's message.
"Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline Project in the direction of Western Europe is considered as a prospective one, and the discussion process of its construction enters active phase," said the message. "The work with the European partners is being carried out in a constructive way, and it will continue."
Talks regarding the delivery of Turkmen gas to Europe are underway since 2011.
The Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline Project involving laying of a 300-km gas pipeline along the bottom of the Caspian Sea to the coast of Azerbaijan is optimal for the delivery of Turkmen energy resources to the European market.
Then the Turkmen fuel can get to Turkey, which shares a border with the European countries.
