Baku to open Palestinian embassy soon
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 12 / Trend U. Sadikhova /
The embassy of the Palestinian Authority in Baku can be opened by late October, an anonymous diplomatic source in the Palestinian Authority told Trend.
"The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry informed the Palestinian side that the building for the embassy has been prepared. The consultations will be held in Baku to open the diplomatic corps soon," a source said.
The exact date is still unknown.
Political consultations between Azerbaijan and the leadership of the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah were intensified after Foreign Minister of the Palestinian Authority Riyad al-Maliki's first visit to Baku in late October last year.
During the visit, al-Maliki spoke about the intention of autonomy to open an embassy in Azerbaijan during the year.
