Southern Gas Corridor Important not just for Azerbaijan, but also for European Countries

The U.S. and Azerbaijan work in such traditional areas as security, economy and energy, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland said.

She made the remarks Feb. 17 at a press conference in Baku.

Nuland praised the meetings she earlier had in Baku, noting that the U.S. very much values over 20 years of partnership with Azerbaijan.

"We want to continue the strong work we have done together over these years," she said.

Nuland went on to add that the US wants to see the strong and independent Azerbaijan.

"We talked about the work we are doing together in Afghanistan, in Kosovo, on countering terrorism, violent extremism," she said.

Touching upon the cooperation in the sphere of energy, Nuland said the Southern Gas Corridor is important not just for Azerbaijan, but also for all the countries in Europe, which are too dependent on a single source of energy.
