President of Türkiye Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated Tuesday that Turkmenistan's gas will soon be transferred to Türkiye and Europe through the expanded Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project (TANAP), Anadolu Agency reports.

"Our long-standing cooperation, crowned with infrastructure investments such as the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipelines, and TANAP, has not only benefited Türkiye and Azerbaijan but has also made significant contributions to the energy security of the region and Europe," Erdogan said in a statement read at the International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition in Baku, Azerbaijan.

He highlighted the willingness of the Turkic world to further develop and deepen their cooperation in energy and various other fields. Erdogan expressed his satisfaction that the next summit of the Organization of Turkic States will be held next month in Shusha, hosted by Azerbaijan.

Türkiye and Azerbaijan signed an agreement in Istanbul on transporting Turkmen natural gas to Türkiye through Azerbaijan and Georgia this May.
