We are grateful to Lithuania for supporting the nearing of positions between Azerbaijan and the European Union, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said making a press statement together with President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda, Trend reports.
"The European Union is our main trading partner. Given the fact that we have started exporting natural gas to Europe and the fact that oil and gas prices are rising, our turnover with the European Union has been certainly growing this year. We are grateful to Lithuania for supporting the nearing of positions between Azerbaijan and the European Union. Azerbaijan has already signed statements on strategic partnership with nine EU members. This is one third of the member states. This shows that the European Union is as interested in cooperation as we are," the head of state.
