/PanARMENIAN.Net/ NATO does not rule out its military expansion to
ensure safety of ways of energy resources even out of the Alliance’s
area, Michael Gaul, Head of NATO Defense and Security Economics
Directorate, said today in Baku. Pipelines, according to him, are
the internal infrastructure of the region, but in some cases, as an
exception, in case of receipt of proposals from outside, NATO can
render assistance in provision of pipeline security.
"The final decision on Nabucco project has not been
made. The project participants should solve issues of project
registration. Azerbaijan’s participation in Nabucco project is an
internal matter. The participating countries should come to common
coordination. NATO realizes whole importance of Nabucco project and
backs Azerbaijan. Undoubtedly, Azerbaijan as a supplier plays very
important role," Georgia Online quotes Mr. Gaul as saying.
