Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, TANAP, TAP projects were supported by Azerbaijan’s initiative and its allies. We have built the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway together with Turkey. We have succeeded in railway joining the East and the West. If cargo would be delivered from China to Europe for 35-40 days, currently, it will take only 14 days. Now, Azerbaijan builds the same route with Iran and Russia.
