‘It’s not accidental that Caspian region and many countries of Middle Asia are interested in using this railway. EU’s statement, which welcomes its joining this railway, is an indicator of recognition of this project’s significance not only for this region, but also for Europe. It should be noted that Azerbaijan intends to explore cooperation perspectives with EU in trade-transport field. Not limiting ourselves with statements and declarations, we’d like to see how EU provides practical support to Azerbaijan and its trade corridors in the process of expansion of Trans-European transport network. In November 2017 I signed High Quality Document with European Commission Vice-President Federica Mogherini in this regard and this indicates that Azerbaijan has commitment to carry out joint benefits and visions of the BTK and other projects with our European partners’.
