President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has received a Russian delegation, who are visiting the country on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Russian Book House in Baku.

Welcoming the delegation, President Ilham Aliyev: Good to see you again.

Chairman of the Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots at the State Duma of the Russian Federation Leonid Kalashnikov: We are coming here as if it were our home.

President Ilham Aliyev: That's right. That's the way it should be. I am very glad to see you. You are visiting us at a very significant time. My visit to Russia has just ended and the CIS summit is about to begin.

Leonid Kalashnikov: Your visit has produced tremendous effect in Russia. Frankly, it was a very warm meeting. All of this was shown.

President Ilham Aliyev: It's no secret that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and I have actually developed a very trusting, and I would say, friendly relationship based on mutual respect, mutual understanding and a desire to deepen cooperation. For me, of course, it is a great honor to have been invited to the Valdai Forum. The forum itself is important and it is also important who sends the invitation. Vladimir Vladimirovich invited me during our meeting in Beijing in April. We then had very constructive negotiations and then we summed up the results in Sochi. Everything we agree on is being fulfilled. Of course, the meeting with the president was very meaningful and very warm. I am very happy about it.
