Minister says Turkey has potential for new economic projects
Turkey has potential for implementation of new economic projects, Turkish online newspaper Dünya Gazetesi quoted the country's Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz as saying on Friday, Trend news agency reported.
Yildiz said that Turkey's geographical position makes it possible to implement new economic projects in the region.
"At the moment such strategically important projects as Trans-Anatolian pipeline (TANAP) pipeline, the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline and other projects are associated with Turkey," Yildiz said.
According to Yildiz, the fact that neighboring countries - Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Turkmenistan have great reserves of hydrocarbons is a great advantage for Turkey.
