Russia has delivered another batch of ammunition and modern military equipment for various purposes to Azerbaijan, according to an agreement on military-technical cooperation signed between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense said.
The new military products delivered by ships from Russia and accepted with the participation of experts, will be transferred to the appropriate military units.
The acceptance of purchased new sets of ammunition and military equipment into the armament of the military units of Azerbaijan Armed Forces, as well as their full readiness for combat use will be ensured in the shortest possible time.
Training of military personnel who will operate and use new weapons and military equipment is conducted by Russian instructors. Furthermore, a phased modernization of the used weapons and equipment is carried out with the use of the latest technology.
The Deputy Director General of the Trend information agency, political commentator Arzu Nagiyev, speaking to Vestnik Kavkaza, noted that the fact that Moscow supplies Baku with the newest types of its weapons, strengthening Azerbaijani defense, is an important moment in the military-technical cooperation between Russia and Azerbaijan.
"Azerbaijan is in a state of martial law, so we are fulfilling a bilateral agreement on the purchase of Russian weapons. Of course, today Russian weapons play a very important role in the defense of Azerbaijan. As the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh continues, we really need these weapons," he stressed.
"At the same time, Russia is supplying us with the latest Russian weapons, and it can also be considered a positive development. I think this weapon will play a big role in the rearmament and defense of the Azerbaijani army," Arzu Nagiyev expects.
In his estimation, the military-technical cooperation between Russia and Azerbaijan will continue in the future. "Azerbaijan and Russia have close neighborly relations, and I am confident that in the future, as neighboring and partner countries, we will continue to cooperate in the military sphere," the military expert concluded.
Yesterday, the Azerbaijani Deputy Minister of Defense Kerim Veliyev, speaking to Vestnik Kavkaza, highly assessed the level of the Russian-Azerbaijani military-technical cooperation. "We are constantly in contact with our Russian colleagues, especially in the military-technical cooperation," Kerim Veliyev noted.
