Natural Gas Europe interviews Global Energy Center Founding Director Richard L. Morningstar on the Southern Corridor project and its implications for Azerbaijan:
Azerbaijan is complicated from a geopolitical standpoint – one just has to look at the map, says Ambassador Richard Morningstar, Founder Director of the Global Energy Center at the Atlantic Council. “It’s in an interesting neighborhood to say the least,” he remarks, adding that the geopolitics of retaining relations with Turkey, Russia and Iran can get complicated.
As the former US Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Morningstar knows a thing or two about the country and the region. He’s also been a US Special Envoy for Eurasian Energy.
