» Foreign Policy News: John Kerry commends Azerbaijan for its strategic role in the region
02/04/2016 Yazdır

Foreign Policy News magazine has published an article headlined “John Kerry commends Azerbaijan for its strategic role in the region”.

“U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on March 30 to discuss various bilateral and regional issues. During the meeting, Kerry commended President Aliyev on Azerbaijan’s efforts in developing the Southern Gas Corridor, a three-pipeline project which will transport 16 billion cubic meters (bcm) of Azerbaijani natural gas to Europe annually by 2019,” the article says.

“The project includes the existing South Caucasus Pipeline built in the 1990s which runs from the terminal in the outskirts of Baku to the Georgia’s Black Sea port of Supsa; Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (also known as TANAP) that runs from Turkish-Georgian border through Anatolia to the Turkish-Greek border, and Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) which transverses Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea and ends in Italy. With a total length of about 3,500 km, it is considered an important step in relieving Europe from single supplier and diversifying its energy imports.”

“Kerry also discussed Azerbaijan’s efforts to become a trade hub and thanked him for Baku’s contributions to NATO mission in Afghanistan, for supporting peacekeeping operations, and contributing efforts in the global war on terror.”

“Kerry and Aliyev also discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The war that lasted from 1988 to 1994 left ethnic Armenians in military control of nearly one fifth of Azerbaijan’s territory and produced a refugee crisis in Azerbaijan.

OSCE Minsk Group co-chaired by the U.S., Russia and France and tasked to mediate the talks, have so far produced no substantial results. Secretary Kerry affirmed U.S. support for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and underscored “our concern about violence along the Line of Contact and the international border.”

He stressed Washington’s commitment to working with Armenia and Azerbaijan to reach a comprehensive settlement based on the principles of international law, the UN Charter, and the Helsinki Final Act.”

“Aliyev expressed gratitude to Secretary Kerry for support the U.S. government had given to Azerbaijan in implementing regional energy projects, including the ongoing Southern Gas Corridor and commended the United States for its efforts to mediate the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict.

President of Azerbaijan stated that he believed the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict lied in implementation of resolutions of UN Security Council, demanding “immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian troops from Azerbaijani territories,” the article says./azertag/
