The heads of the administrations held a regular meeting of the Baku International Humanitarian Forum's organization committee, which is due in early October.
"We are extremely satisfied with the cooperation between our two countries," Sergey Naryshkin said. "Russia and Azerbaijan attach great importance to humanitarian issues. The positions of Moscow and Baku are similar, sometimes identical on the international agenda."
