TURKEY - Uzbekistan P/L.

On April 14, 1998, then Turkish Premier Mesut Yilmaz, visiting Tashkent, backed Uzbekistan's bid for a trans-Caspian oil and gas export pipeline system which had Washington's active support. Uzbek President Islam Karimov called the proposed pipeline route, to run from Uzbekistan to Turkey via Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan, "the most important" one for his country.

Like its Central Asian neighbours, landlocked Uzbekistan is eager to have pipelines to export oil and gas to world markets. With the European market for gas to become nearly saturated by 2010, major western firms intent on exporting gas from Central Asia still consider Turkey as an important market.
