“The reason is not that international financial organizations consider BTK inefficient, but due to the fact that our ill-intentioned neighbor tried to prevent the project’s implementation,” said the minister.
In this regard, added Sharifov, the head of state decided that the project will be financed by the country.
Official opening ceremony of the BTK railway was held in Baku Oct. 30. The BTK railway was constructed on the basis a Georgian-Azerbaijani-Turkish intergovernmental agreement.
