The bilateral relationships between Azerbaijan and Russia develop well and comprehensively, Novruz Mammadov, the head of the Department for Foreign Relationships of the Azerbaijani Presidents Apparat, stated in an exclusive interview for Trend.
Over the past few years there were achieved great successes. The Presidents meet traditionally once or twice a year to hold exchange of opinions on wider specter of issues which the countries are interested in. Obviously, the meetings and talks yield positive results, Mammadov stressed. The senior state officer voiced his confidence that the forthcoming visit of the Russian President to Azerbaijan to honor the opening of Year of Russia in Azerbaijan with the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev will become one more support for the upgrade of relationships.
Mammadov did not rule out that along with the joint statement during the visit the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents could sign one more document which is currently under development. It is also planned to ink an agreement on cooperation of Azerbaijan with the governments of some regions of Russia.
