The project of a new underwater gas pipeline off the eastern coast of the Caspian Sea involves construction of 360 kilometers of pipes along the Turkmenistan coast and another 160 kilometers along the coast of Kazakhstan. At the Russian-Kazakh border, it will be connected to the CAC (Central Asia-Center) pipeline, which was built in 1967 and needs modernization or even replacement.</p><p>For the last two years, the Dick Cheney/Anglo-Dutch forces have been trying to create a foothold in this area against Russia, especially because the area is strategically located at the Eurasian intersection of Russia, China, and India.</p><p>Meanwhile, Senator Igor Pugachev of the Upper House of the Russian Parliament, the Federation Council, called on other countries to no longer waste efforts and funds for the ill-advised concept of a non-Russian pipeline across the Caspian Sea. Instead, he said, other countries should join the RKT project, as the only sound policy for Caspian gas transfer.</p></div></body>
