While Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and the EU continue their negotiations over the trans-Caspian pipeline construction, which would enable Turkmen gas to reach Europe, the US State Department made a statement that the USA supports the Trans Caspian gas pipeline project. Laying a pipe on the Caspian Sea bed for the transportation of natural gas to Europe, is supported by the US and the EU, whereas Russia and Iran are categorically against it, suggesting that first judicial status should be determined of the Caspian Sea and secondly, the Caspian ecological situation should be taken care of.
