The President of Azerbaijan made a statement to the press following a meeting with his Bulgarian counterpart in Baku.

Thanks to Azerbaijani investments, the modernization of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway (BTK) was fully completed a few days ago, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said in a press statement following a meeting with his Bulgarian counterpart Rumen Radev in Baku.
He stressed that the capacity of the BTK has increased several times.

“This project, initiated by Azerbaijan at the time, will play an important role as a significant segment of the Middle Corridor due to the expanded opportunities today. The transportation of even larger volumes of goods along the East-West corridor and in the opposite direction will further strengthen our relations,” Aliyev said.

According to him, the trade turnover between Azerbaijan and Bulgaria has recently increased several times, which was facilitated by cooperation in the energy sector.
The President also noted that the export of Azerbaijani gas to Bulgaria is growing year by year.

“Last year, 1 billion 250 million cubic meters of Azerbaijani gas were transported to the Bulgarian market. For comparison, I can say that in 2022 this figure was only 600 million,” Aliyev stressed.

According to the head of state, Azerbaijan is working very actively with partner countries, including Bulgaria, on the transmission of “green” electricity.
The feasibility study of this project, which will be ready in a few months, will be an excellent basis for starting work, the Azerbaijani leader believes.
“Thus, Azerbaijan will prove itself as a supplier to Europe not only of oil and gas, but also of “green” energy. The potential is quite wide, and we will also talk about it at the SOR29 conference at the end of the year,” Aliyev said.
