In this regard, Zaur Imrani gave an interview to the leading Russian telegraph agency TASS. He said that Ashgabat and Baku have been considering the possibility of laying a gas pipeline from the coast of Turkmenistan to Azerbaijan through the Caspian Sea for a long time. The frozen project for the construction of the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Azerbaijan can be restored with the subsequent transit of energy resources to Europe.
Ashgabat and Baku have long been considering building a gas pipeline from the coast of Turkmenistan to Azerbaijan across the Caspian Sea. The Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea states that such projects should be agreed only between the countries through whose territorial waters the pipeline will pass.
After the signing of the convention, a number of media outlets reported that the agreement had given the green light to the project.
