2016 to be year of energy and transport in terms of Turkish-Azerbaijani relations

2016 will be the year of energy and transport in terms of relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan, Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan Ismail Alper Coskun told reporters on Jan. 29.

He said the TANAP project will be completed despite some speculation.

“We are going to commission the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway this year. Only the Turkey-related issues remain incomplete. In fact, those issues had to be completed last year. However, there were some legal problems. But the work will be completed this year,” the ambassador added.

The ambassador said the preparation is underway for the upcoming Baku meeting of the High Level Cooperation Council.
