Almost every week one country is supplied with gas. All infrastructures are reconstructed, and these processes are carried out at modern level and I consider that all the regions of the country will be supplied with gas for the next two years,” said President Ilham Aliyev at the Cabinet`s meeting on outcomes of the socio-economic development in first quarter 2011.
The President reminded that a statement was signed between Azerbaijan and the European Union on the South gas corridor, stressing that this statement meets both parties` interests.
