20 years ago, on 8 Mrch 1996, President of the Republiv of Azerbaijan H.E. Mr. Heydar Aliyev and President of Georgia, H.E. Mr. Eduard Shevardnadze signed the agreements on the construction of “Bku-Supsa” pipeline.
It was the most significant milestone establishing the foundation for ever more fruitful and successful cooperation between Georgia and Azerbaijan.
The agreement marked the beginning of the new era for both countries, brought increased stability and peace as well as created the basis for further growth.
Today, 20 years after its inception this undertaking has not lost its significance, but on the contrary, has been followed by other important projects and initiatives, like BTC and SCP piplene projects implementation.
