President Ilham Aliyev: TANAP is another victory for Turkey and Azerbaijan

Baku, June 13, AZERTAC “The commissioning of TANAP today is yet another manifestation of the Turkish-Azerbaijani brotherhood. TANAP is another victory for Turkey and Azerbaijan. TANAP is a historic project,” said President Ilham Aliyev as he addressed the opening ceremony of TANAP project in Eskisehir, Turkey. “Today we are writing the energy history of the 21st century together. This is a history of cooperation, a history of stability. Our energy projects bring stability to the region. All countries and companies participating in these projects are benefiting from them. People benefit from them. The implementation of such a giant project as TANAP has been possible thanks to the firm political will of the leaders of Turkey and Azerbaijan,” the head of state noted. “This is not our first joint project. Prior to this, in 2006, we celebrated the opening of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline. In 2007, we opened the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline together. Last year, we opened the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway together. We participated in all these opening ceremonies together with my dear brother Recep Tayyip Erdogan. And today, on this historic day, we are also together. This shows that any project put forward on our initiative is executed because it is underpinned by our thoughtful policy, firm will and brotherhood,” President Ilham Aliyev added.
