WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- U.S. Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman will lead a delegation to Azerbaijan for the 2008 Energy Summit.

The summit is being hosted by Azeri President Ilham Aliyev. The U.S. delegation will take part in bilateral meetings with foreign heads of state and government ministers, the U.S. Department of Energy announced.

Bodman said the U.S. discussion will focus on commitment to the development of the Southern Pipeline Corridor and to bringing Central Asian and Caspian oil and gas to global markets.

"The United States remains firmly committed to the development of independent, commercially viable energy supply routes enabling the transport of competitive energy resources from the Caspian region to meet the needs of markets east, west, north and south," Bodman said.
