The Ambassador said that such visits have taken place in the past and will continue in the future.
Touching upon the documents prepared to be signed within the visit, the Ambassador said that up to now, many bilateral agreements have been signed between Azerbaijan and Iran, but the developing relations between the two countries require that the documents need to be reconsider.
