China and Kazakhstan agreed yesterday to expand an oil pipeline that will link China to the Caspian Sea.
The Atasu-Alashankou pipeline will allow China to have the direct access to an energy-rich region controlled by Kazakhstan.
Chinese President Hu Jintao met in in Kazakhstan with his counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev, where they discussed the expansion of the pipeline by 700km westward.
“These are really big projects and today we reached agreements on these matters,” Nazarbayev said.
