Bosnia and Herzegovina will be supplied with gas through a leg of the Azerbaijani pipeline that ends in Italy, Bosnia Presidency member Milorad Dodik confirmed on Saturday following a meeting with President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in Baku.
“It is known that Azerbaijan is constructing a southern leg of the pipeline that is supposed to end in Italy, through Montenegro and Republika Srpska (Bosnia's semi-autonomous region) and Bosnia and Herzegovina. We talked on this subject and said there is no problem concerning the construction,” Dodik told RTRS, Republika Srpska's public broadcaster.
The Serb Presidency member pointed out that this means the Republika Srpska, as well as the whole Bosnia and Herzegovina, will be supplied with gas from Montenegro's direction.
“We also discussed the possibilities of engaging Azerbaijani companies for the construction of highways under favourable loans,” said Dodik, adding that the country he is visiting these days is interested in the development of economic relations.
“That's a growing economy, the country that has at disposal significant sources of oil and gas,” he stressed.
