"TANAP, along with strengthening the political and economic ties between Ankara and Baku, is also an important project for Turkey in terms of energy security." According to APA-Economics, the head of the press service of the Turkish department Mehmet Ali Berber said this at a meeting with foreign journalists.
According to him, Turkey attaches great importance to Azerbaijani gas: "Because 50% of the gas imported by Turkey falls on Russia's share. This is a fairly large indicator. I think the diversification of energy sources, to which the government seeks, will ensure the energy security of our country. "
The representative of the ministry noted that the supply of Azerbaijani gas to Europe is demonstrated by the will of Ankara and Baku: "Azerbaijan and Turkey jointly implemented a project that Europe has discussed for years, but could not realize."
