A high-profile summit on energy security will be held next week in Batumi, Georgia to discuss energy delivery from the Caspian Basin to world markets.

The Jan. 14 summit also was to include discussions of energy security, the development of the South Caucasus energy corridor and other issues of mutual interest, said Georgian Energy Minister Alexander Khetaguri.

Khetaguri said the presidents of nine countries planned to attend the summit.

Confirmed participants included Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, and Romania.

The first energy security summit in the regions of Caspian Sea, Black Sea and Baltic Sea took place in Krakow, Poland in 2007. High-level negotiations have since been held in Vilnius, Kiev and Baku.
