Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend , corr I. Alizadeh / Major moves have been made to bring the Azerbaijani military in accordance with NATO standards and Azerbaijan has successfully succeeded.
Ziyafat Askarov, the Chief Deputy Speaker of the Milli Mejlis (the Azerbaijani Parliament) and the head of the Azerbaijani delegation to the PA of NATO, stated that officially Baku is still loyal to its responsibilities.
"The current level of relations is rather satisfactory for our country.

A number of other documents have been signed between NATO and Azerbaijan, which are successfully implemented," Askarov said.
