President Ilham Aliyev: We have now revived NABUCCO project, which was once consigned to history

Baku, January 30, AZERTAC

“We have now revived the NABUCCO project, which was once consigned to history. Through interconnectors, Azerbaijani gas will be delivered to Bulgaria, then to Romania, then to Hungary, and after Hungary to other European countries,” said President Ilham Aliyev as he made a joint press statement with Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban in Budapest.
“We have also discussed this. Hungary is not only a consumer of Azerbaijani gas but will also act as a transit country for Azerbaijani gas to other European countries,” the head of state noted.
“Of course, energy security issues are of particular importance in the present-day world, and I think they are currently at the top of the global agenda. Azerbaijan's ample oil and gas resources allow it the opportunity to be a reliable partner for Europe for many years to come – at least for a hundred years from now in terms of natural gas. This is exactly what the leadership of the European Commission calls Azerbaijan – a reliable partner,” President Ilham Aliyev emphasized.
