20:27 / 09/15/2009No negotiations over Armenia’s participation in
the Nabucco project are under way, Andris Piebalgs, Commissioner for
Energy, European Commission, stated at the Gas Infrastructure World
Caspian-2009 conference in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Armenia is not in the list of participating countries, Azeri mass
media report, referring to the European official.

Early this September, the Turkey-based Star newspaper reported the
European Union (EU), which rendered great assistance to Armenia and
Turkey in reaching an agreement, wanted the planned Nabucco natural
gas pipeline to run through Armenia, not Georgia, as a transit
country. The normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations might be
accompanied by changes in the regional energy balance. Armenia was
announced a prospective participant in the Nabucco project.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
