Laying pipelines along Caspian seabed is issue of principle for Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan believes that construction of a pipeline along the Caspian seabed needs approval of those countries, through the sections of which it will run. Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said about it at the Third Caspian Summit in Baku on November 18.

"Turkmenistan is firmly convinced that laying an underwater pipeline in the Caspian Sea may be carried out only with the consent of those countries, the sections of which it will cross. Certainly, all the highest international environmental standards and norms will be observed,” he stressed.
