Ilham Aliyev received Iranian Foreign Minister25 May 2021, 11:40
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has received the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Welcoming the Minister, President Ilham Aliyev said:
- Dear Minister, I am very glad to see you. I am confident that during your visit to Azerbaijan, we will discuss the positive development of our relations in detail, the developing bilateral relations. I looked at the data before your visit and saw that there is an increase in trade turnover. Despite the pandemic, it is very positive. All the initiatives and decisions put forward by President Rouhani and myself have been implemented. We are very pleased with the level of cooperation during President Rouhani's presidency, and this period is coming to an end. Please convey my greetings and gratitude for the partnership and cooperation.
We have made great progress in all areas. I think that the relations between our countries are perhaps at the highest level in the history of our cooperation. Of course, there are new opportunities, new challenges connected with the new situation in the region – the post-conflict situation. Of course, as two brotherly countries, Iran and Azerbaijan must coordinate efforts and contribute to long-term and sustainable peace in the region. I am sure that the Iranian government shares the same approach because we have had many contacts in the period since the conflict was resolved. Perhaps we will touch on several important issues today to make this process more smooth. Welcome again!
