Azerbaijan supports the participation of Russian companies in the development of the oil fields in its territory, the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov stated in his interview with ITAR-TASS in Moscow, Trendreports.
If Russian companies wish to participate in the oil production in Azerbaijan's fields, we welcome it, he stressed. Many situations here depend on the activity of the oil and gas sector of Russia, Mammadyarov emphasized. According to him, generally the development of Russian-Azerbaijani relations is very good. Many interesting projects are realized in the economical, cultural and educational areas, the Minister stated.
Our relationship is developing with mutual respect and in a state of good neighborliness, Mammadyarov said. It would be a shame that the absence of the language barrier, the existence of a huge market in Russia, the possible development of the Azerbaijani agriculture and the closeness of our cultures do not assist in developing our relationship, Mammadyarov concluded.
