Donald Lu, the US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, during his visit to Ashgabat, called good prospects for the supply of Turkmen gas to the European Union through Azerbaijan, TASS reported.
“Early in my career, I had the opportunity to be charge d’affaires at our embassy in Baku. And we, the Azerbaijani side, the EU, the US and Turkmenistan, we talked about the possibility of supplying Turkmen gas to Europe. It would be very good for the Turkmen government to think about this project now “, – said the assistant to the head of the US foreign policy department.
The diplomat believes that the Turkmen people will be better off the more opportunities there are for gas supplies from the country in different directions.
“This will provide the people of Turkmenistan not only with the highest prices for Turkmen gas, but also with reliable supplies. The US is ready to help in any way possible,” the US official said.
