Letta calls pipeline approval strategic for Italy

Rome, June 28 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta on Friday called the recent agreement approving the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) ''strategic'' for the country, adding that there was tension with Romania at a summit on Thursday in which the plan was approved. TAP is a natural gas pipeline project that is set to start in Greece and run across Albania and the Adriatic Sea before reaching southern Italy. It will allow gas to flow directly from the Caspian region to European markets, bypassing certain Eastern European nations. ''It's very important news'' said Letta. The Italian premier said he planned to travel soon to Azerbaijan to thank the government.
