Kiev Post: Azerbaijan hopes to become key gas supplier to Europe
Azeri President Ilham Aliyev has promised to turn his country into a major supplier of natural gas to European states.
Azerbaijan's natural gas reserves will allow the country to seriously increase gas exports to Europe within the next decade and remain a key supplier for a century, he said.
"We have large potential. I would like to note that Azerbaijan will act as a leading gas supplier to Europe for at least 100 years," Aliyev said at a business forum in Baku on Monday.
Croatian President Ivo Josipovic attended the event.
Azerbaijan is unhappy with the amount of natural gas it is extracting and exporting today, Aliyev said. MORE
