The Trans-Anatolian pipeline (TANAP) project has further unified Turkey and Azerbaijan, the Turkish Presidential Administration told Trend on June 7 commenting on the upcoming opening of TANAP.

The Administration emphasized that all projects implemented jointly with Azerbaijan are very successful and are aimed not only at development of the two countries, but the entire region.

"TANAP is such a project, which was under the special attention of Turkey and Azerbaijan from the first day," the Turkish Presidential Administration said.
