Polad Bulbul oglu: Russia-Azerbaijan relations have character of strategic partnership
In recent years, bilateral relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation have reached a qualitatively and fundamentally new level, said the statement of Azerbaijan's Ambassador to Russia Polad Bulbul oglu, during the "Azerbaijan-Russia: Economic Diplomacy and Partnership Strategy" Forum.
"Today, Russian-Azerbaijani relations are in the nature of a strategic partnership and provide all areas of cooperation, including political, economic, trade, social, cultural, humanitarian, educational areas, and also encompass large-scale military-technical cooperation. Undoubtedly, such an atmosphere created between Azerbaijan and Russia is primarily based on mutual trust between the leaders of the two countries, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin," said the ambassador.
Polad Bulbul oglu said there is a very intensive political and economic dialogue between our countries, which gives an important impetus to the acceleration of Azerbaijani-Russian relations.
"Inter-parliamentary ties, the activities of the Intergovernmental State Commission on Economic Cooperation, close interdepartmental contacts have further enriched cooperation based on the policy of good neighborliness, centuries-old traditions of friendship and mutual respect. Both countries also effectively cooperate on the world stage, including within the framework of international organizations, taking into account the interests of each other," he said.
"Our countries have concluded about 300 bilateral agreements and have taken important steps to implement them. I would especially like to draw the attention of readers to the documents signed during the official visit of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev to the Russian Federation on September 1, 2018, which created the necessary basis for further expansion of bilateral trade and mutual investments, and in general, deepening of economic ties," he said.
"The achieved level of cooperation gives us reason to speak with confidence about the further development of bilateral relations for the benefit of our peoples", Bulbul oglu said.
