In Georgia: Military actions must not threaten the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline

43

Military actions should not create threats to the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline. This is very important, since the highway is of strategic importance not only in the Transcaucasian region, but also far beyond its borders.


This statement was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia David Zalkiani at a briefing held after the government meeting.

Tbilisi's fears are caused by a message from the Azerbaijani Prosecutor General's Office on Wednesday about an attempt by the Armenian military to attack a section of the oil pipeline on the territory of Azerbaijan. They say that the strike was struck the day before yesterday at about 21. Yerevan denies this information.

It is very important for us that there is no military influence of any kind on these objects. The oil pipeline is an extremely important facility that plays an important role in the energy security of the region and the European Union as well.

- said the head of the Georgian Foreign Ministry.

The Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline, named after Heydar Aliyev, is used to supply Caspian oil to the terminals of the Turkish port of Ceyhan on the Mediterranean Sea. It is operated by BP.

In the future, the pipeline is planned to be extended to the Caspian coast of Kazakhstan. Now, not only Azerbaijani oil, but also Kazakh and Turkmen oil is pumped through it.

Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan is the first oil pipeline in the CIS to bypass Russia, in the creation of which the United States and Great Britain actively participated. These countries have lobbied and funded the project.



According to some experts, Russia's financial losses after the launch of the pipeline amount to about $ 200 million annually.

        in this case, blow up if it is not on Georgian soil. and the Azerbaijanis were the first to understand the topic. Now the worried Georgians have understood. their business is the side.

          This is just your guess.
          If the Anglo-Saxons aim to set fire to the entire South Caucasus, then it does not matter where to blow up the highways - in Azerbaijan, Georgia or Turkey.
          Pitting everyone against each other and at the same time staying on the sidelines is the favorite pastime of the Anglo-Saxons, so it doesn't matter where the highway is broken, the main thing is to create another mess, throw firewood into it and at the same time have a profit from the sale of weapons and other problems at the borders of Russia.

      Well, yes, and people, according to your crap, women still give birth.
      Where is the world heading when personal gain is even officially placed above people's lives. Previously, at least somehow they tried not to advertise it, to negotiate on the sidelines. Now everything is in plain text. Cynicism and grabbing rule this world, flying to hell. Ugh.

        Do you think that in the noble nineteenth century the war with Turkey for the liberation of Bulgaria had only a spiritual basis? You will probably be very surprised, but it was the mercantile interests in relation to the straits that were the driving force of that war, it is just that some historians prefer not to remember this.

          Yeah, but then the whole "civilized" world was not obsessed with tolerance and the rights of minorities. But all of us Georgians are so democratic and opposed to wild and aggressive Russia, and here it is, in all its glory
          And regarding the liberation of Bulgaria ... I will say this - a war, including for the sake of the Slavic brotherhood and Christian unity, and together with the straits, is better than just for the sake of the Slavic brotherhood laughing

    They fussed, genatsvale, they realized that the instigators could get a whip. It is strange why the Armenian leadership has not yet authorized at least the allocation of funds for an operation to inflict economic harm on Turkey by disrupting the operation of this pipeline. In general, as it turned out, Armenians can become real marshals, like I.Kh. Bagramyan, only in the "totalitarian USSR" under the leadership of the Georgian Stalin I.V., but in independent Armenia, somewhere all military leadership talents have disappeared ...

    And the Georgians were bustling about. We took the side of Azerbaijan, closed the airspace for the passage of transport aircraft, but are concerned about the pipeline. Send your "super duper" fighters to guard and guard day and night. Maybe something will fly in and fix the brains.

    On October 1, in the comments to the article "Foreign press: If Azerbaijan and Turkey take too harsh measures, Armenia may hit the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline", VO readers simply sneered at the retired general who pointed out such a scenario.

    According to some experts, Russia's financial losses after the launch of the pipeline amount to about $ 200 million annually.

    Is this a hint that it will be beneficial to Russia?

      I rode the outskirts with my miracle diplomats and special services, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan is next in line, and then along the border to the east. a start .......

      For the Guarantor and partners this is not money, they are not losing it out of their own pockets, and the Russian budget will withstand everything.

      This, in principle, cannot be done - they will immediately open whose hands it was.
      In Soviet times, a special forces brigade was stationed in Lagodekhi, and so there were specialists in that region, and they were preparing to carry out sabotage against military bases in Turkey. The contingent was recruited locally, although of course almost all of the officers were from other regions. So, if desired, in Armenia, they could prepare the necessary people, only they didn't do it after the collapse of the USSR, and now they whine that Turkey opposed them, as if this could not have been foreseen before.

    The highway is of strategic importance not only in the Transcaucasian region, but also far beyond its borders.
    All this is understandable, but in Armenia, what is the "exhaust" from it? On occasion, when there will be nothing to lose at all, they will bomb him, for a sweet soul. I would do that.

      There is no need to be like the representatives of the Azerbaijani prosecutor's office, who voiced this as the goal of Armenia. They clearly have one gyrus - from wearing a cap!
      Militarily, this does not give Armenia anything and they are well aware of it there. Economically, too! In political consequences, for Armenia itself, this is complete isolation and slow economic death. Do you really think that by blowing up the pipeline Azerbaijan will be left without oil, fuel or the economy will become? Sheer stupidity!

              the problem is that it is necessary to bang not on a string (although it is also possible along it), but in political eggs ... Armenia admitted that Azerbaijan was attacked in the NKR part or what?

    In the event of the destruction of this pipeline, Azerbaijan without oil
    will not remain. Will be left without currency. As a result, there will be nothing
    buy weapons. The belligerence will decrease.

    So in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, some dumbbells are sitting, so they write all sorts of crap. I can imagine during the Second World War we bomb here, but here we don’t touch it, because this is a supply line for neutrals (oil, grain, timber, etc.). I have never heard such delirium.
