Azerbaijan’s Minister of Energy, Parviz Shahbazov and Georgia’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili welcomed the work done to increase the transmission capacity of the energy systems of Azerbaijan and Georgia and to ensure the transportation of electricity exported from Azerbaijan to Turkey and European countries.
Both parties also noted that implementing the Black Sea submarine power and digital connectivity project, which will unite Azerbaijan, Georgia, Romania and Hungary will open a new page in the relations between our countries.
Indeed, joint implementation of global energy projects and sustainable contributions to Georgia’s energy security were assessed as an indicator of strategic partnership relations. Prime Minister Garibashvili called Azerbaijan a reliable strategic partner and a country that plays a crucial role in Georgia’s energy supply.
In particular, the implementation of the Black Sea submarine power and digital connectivity project will diversify Europe’s supply sources thanks to the huge wind energy potential of Azerbaijan in the Caspian Sea, the steps taken to create large-scale production capacities, as well as the support of the European Union and the World Bank.
