It was then that the groundwork for energy security provision of Europe owing to the Caspian energy resources was laid. In this regard, we will hold Caspian Energy Forum Baku at this time of each year. This was made possible owing to new conditions that the senior management of the Caspian European Club created for the conduction of the Caspian Energy Forum Baku– 2018”, Telman Aliyev stressed.
