The United States has a very strong security relationship with Azerbaijan as a very strong security partner, U.S. Charge d'Affaires in Azerbaijan Adam Sterling told reporters on Tuesday.
Commenting on reports about ban on sale of weapons to Azerbaijan he said: "When companies want to sell defense articles outside the U.S. they get license for the sale from the State Department of the U.S. This case involved a single application from a company which wants to sale a defense article to a number of countries and under the list of countries there was Azerbaijan and that private company amended its license and removed Azerbaijan from the application."

"The United States has a very strong security relationship with Azerbaijan as a very strong security partner. We provide assistance to Azerbaijan," Sterling stressed.
