Dmitry Kiselyov: European games are evidence of Azerbaijan’s growth

The European Games to be held in Baku this June indicate rapid growth, which Azerbaijan shows today in all spheres, the Director General of the Russian international information agency Russia Today, Dmitry Kiselyov, told Vestnik Kavkaza, speaking about present-day Russian-Azerbaijani relations.


"I have an invitation to the 2015 European Games, and I recently visited Azerbaijan, where I observed the scale of the preparations for the competition. Frankly saying, I'm fascinated by the development which Azerbaijan is showing and the welcoming atmosphere that exists in the country. My wife also has warm feelings. Unfortunately, we visited only Baku, but the Azerbaijani capital is much more impressive than many European ones. I think that these games are positioning Azerbaijan on the world map as a growing point, and this is nice," Kiselyov said.


According to him, relations between Russia and Azerbaijan not only have great potential in the future, but also a "big present". "I would like to mention the role of the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev. He has such a quality of keeping his word. In present times, even the leaders of major world powers don't have this quality, but Aliyev demonstrates it. I think it determines the nature of the friendship and trust between Putin and Aliyev. They both know they can always count on each other, on the understanding and fulfillment of mutual commitments. Aliyev's toughness and strategic wisdom of maintaining peace in Azerbaijan ensure very good prospects for the country and the people," Dmitry Kiselyov concluded.
