Furthermore, he said that the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line, the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline and the Southern Gas Corridor, which are the fruits of the Heydar Aliyev’s visionary policy, have completely reshaped the energy and transport maps of Europe. The diplomat stressed that thanks to the successful policy by President Ilham Aliyev, who continues the political course of National Leader Heydar Aliyev, Azerbaijan’s reputation is growing day by day on a global scale, the 30-year-long occupation of Azerbaijani territories has ended and Azerbaijan’s victory in the 2020 Patriotic War restored the country’s territorial integrity.
