Baku, Tbilisi, Ankara to Construct Electricity Transmission Line
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 8 Feb.'07 / 11:11

Azerbaijani, Georgian and Turkish leaders agreed on February 7 in Tbilisi to launch the construction of an electricity transmission line that will link Azerbaijan with Turkey via Georgia.

“We agree to support the construction of a new electricity transmission line from the Republic of Azerbaijan through the territory of Georgia to the Republic of Turkey, as well as other appropriate projects, which will enhance electricity exchange between the Parties in future,” reads the declaration signed by Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Tbilisi Declaration on Common Vision for Regional Cooperation also notes that by implementing major regional projects involving oil and gas pipelines and a railway network, the three states are establishing “long-term and predictable” relations.

The Declaration also says that a joint working group will be set up to look into additional investment projects.

“To contribute to the common perspectives of the region we invite our neighbors to consider joining our efforts,” the Declaration reads.
