Experts of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations have been carrying out pyrotechnic works near the Afatli settlement of the Aghdam districts in Azerbaijan’s Karabakh region since January 6, Trend reports citing the Russian MES.

“As part of the humanitarian mission, it is planned to clear about 100 hectares, the ministry message reads.

“For 3 days, the staff of the ministry surveyed an area of more than one hectare. They discovered and destroyed about 65 explosive objects, most of which were mines,” the ministry noted.

“Experts of the ‘Leader Center’ are cleaning the territories using a special de-mining machine. The robotic complex weighing 5.5 tons is designed to clear the area from all types of anti-personnel mines and shells, as well as to clear debris. Also, a specially trained mine detector dog is involved,” said the ministry.

“Moreover, within the framework of cooperation, employees of the Russian Noginsk Rescue Training Center organized practical training for specialists of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Azerbaijan. The training is attended by 30 Azerbaijani experts, who, upon completion, will receive the appropriate certificates,” the message noted.

“With the assistance of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, 15 modular cabins were handed over to the Azerbaijani side. These include both residential blocks for living in the field, and administrative modules. It is planned that specialists will live in them during the period of de-mining work," the ministry said.

To remind, the combined group of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, consisting of 20 people, arrived in Azerbaijan on a humanitarian mission on 4 January.

There are no plans to sell stakes in state companies this year, including in the state oil company of Azerbaijan SOCAR, Azerbaijani Minister of Economy Mikayil Jabbarov said in an interview with Bloomberg, Trend reports.

“But Azerbaijan intends to adopt a privatization program that will include “new assets that haven’t been offered until now,” the minister said, without offering a timeframe for sales.

“We don’t believe it’s correct to do privatization for the sake of privatization or to do privatization within a certain deadline,” Jabbarov said. “That’s why our choice was to set up an investment holding company, giving it a chance to work and increase shareholder value.”

“As part of efforts to boost growth, the Caspian Sea nation is moving 21 major government-owned companies to a new state holding company tasked to improve efficiency and corporate governance as well as prepare them for possible privatization,” the minister said.

“The end of the conflict over the occupied territories will improve stability in the Caucasus and boost Azerbaijan’s role as a regional hub, with more trade and transit of goods and people contributing to prosperity,” Jabbarov said.

Dostlug field to help develop Azerbaijan’s petrochemicals industry – Bryza

The agreement reached today between Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan to work together on exploring and developing the Dostlug oil and gas field in the Caspian Sea is a major milestone, former US ambassador to Azerbaijan Matthew Bryza told Trend.

“With this agreement now, I think not only is it possible for the two countries to work together to develop the Dostlug field, but it should also clear the way for cooperation on natural gas production or at least transit from Turkmenistan across the Caspian Sea to Azerbaijan and beyond. That would be very important for Turkmenistan to give its outlets to reliable markets,” he said.

Bryza pointed out that New volumes of gas from Turkmenistan, especially from other fields of Turkmenistan in the Caspian Sea have a natural market in Azerbaijan to help develop Azerbaijan’s petrochemical industry, but also maybe in Turkey.

“Perhaps, these new volumes of natural gas could allow for expansion of Azerbaijan’s petrochemicals industry. In short, this is a very important agreement that paves way for a wide range of cooperation,” he added.
