Cicek: Nabucco is a mark of Türkiye's rising credibility

Dunya – Turkish Deputy Prime Minister and government spokesman Cemil Cicek stated that the Nabucco project is a sign of Türkiye's rising credibility on the international arena, saying, "If our country had lacked calm and stability, such a significant project would have never come to fruition." Speaking to reporters after a cabinet meeting, Cicek said, "This project will both increase Türkiye's international importance and make significant contributions to Türkiye's relations with the EU.” “Nabucco shows the indispensability of Türkiye both in the region and in the EU."
