U.S. Charge d'Affaires in Azerbaijan Donald Lu appraised U.S.-Azerbaijan cooperation to support Afghanistan.

"We believe Azerbaijan has high-quality products for sale and we will buy these products for millions of dollars in the region to support the Afghan people," Lu said at the opening of an Azerbaijani-American workshop in Baku.

The United States is convinced that it is possible to buy construction materials, foodstuffs and equipment in the short term for relatively low prices in Azerbaijan, he added.

The one-day workshop organized by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was attended by representatives of the U.S. Administration and Agency for Logistical Support to the Defense Sector, as well as representatives of TMC and TWI.
