The corresponding decree was published on Tuesday on the website of the head of the Azerbaijani state.

The agreement was signed on December 17 last year in Bucharest and provides for the laying of a power transmission line along the bottom of the Black Sea with a capacity of 1 GW, its total length will be 1,195 km. Through this cable, the "green" energy produced in Azerbaijan will go through Georgia and the Black Sea to Romania, Hungary and other European countries.
