BAKU, March 12 (Itar-Tass) — Croatia is interested in projects to supply Azerbaijani energy resources to European markets, Croatian President Ivo Josipovic said after talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev on Monday.
“We know that energy supplies to Europe begin already, and we are strongly interested in taking part in these projects,” the Croatian leader said. He added that the Croatian delegation will have negotiations on that with colleagues from the Azerbaijani government later on Monday. “All this is very important for us,” the president noted.
The Azerbaijani president, for his part, said that the energy issue, including gas deliveries, had been discussed at talks with his Croatian counterpart. “I am confident that members of the delegations will continue these discussions, as Azerbaijan is diversifying delivery routes for its natural gas and from this point of view European markets are very attractive for us,” Aliyev said.
On the whole, he believes energy cooperation “creates the ground for a growth of trade between the two countries”. The Azerbaijani leader also expressed his country’s bid to invest in the energy sector and social projects of Croatia. Speaking about other spheres of cooperation, he focused on shipbuilding, agriculture and tourism. Aliyev, in particular, said the Azerbaijani State Caspian Shipping Company intends to buy ships in Croatia.
Sources from the Azerbaijani government said two new ferries are being built in that Balkan country and that the shipping company intends to place the order for three more ferries.
