Azerbaijan and UAE to discuss further cooperation

Azerbaijan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will discuss the ways of development of further cooperation, the Azerbaijani Ambassador to the UAE Dashgin Shikarov said.

The discussions will be held during an official visit of the UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan to Azerbaijan, which is scheduled for April 2017, according to the preliminary agreement.

Shikarov said that currently, work is underway in order to organize the upcoming visit.

“Bilateral relations between Azerbaijan and the UAE, particularly, its political component is at a high level: relations between our countries are based on a multidirectional cooperation by considering mutual interests,” Trend cited Shikarov as saying.

The UAE is one of Azerbaijan’s important partners in Persian Gulf and the Middle East region, he said,  adding that meanwhile, Azerbaijan is the most important partner of the UAE in the Caucasus.

The diplomat emphasized that both countries have close positions on many international issues. Azerbaijan and the UAE actively cooperate both on the bilateral basis and within the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), United Nations (UN) and other international organizations.

“We praise these relations with the friendly country and are deeply satisfied with the fact that the UAE unequivocally supports Azerbaijan’s fair position in resolutions adopted by the OIC, UN and other international organizations in connection with the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan and the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” Shikarov added.
