Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 24 /Trend/
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's initiative on the possibility to establish Eurasian economic zone is interesting enough, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said in an interview with Russian "Komsomolskaya Pravda" newspaper, published on Monday.
"I such understand that this is a situation on the eve of the election platforms and reaching a new stage of development if Vladimir Vladimirovich is elected the president. The subject of the Eurasian area is intensively discussed. There are many different initiatives, starting from the Helsinki Final Act, if to take the OSCE: Europe from Atlantic to the Pacific," Mammadyarov said.
According to Minister, the economic platform is actually the only organization that unites.
Speaking about economic cooperation between Azerbaijan and Russia, Mammadyarov said that the trade with Russia is growing steadily and the sides have reached even higher figures than those before the crisis period.
"Speaking about our relationship, we probably should take into account the medium businesses. And in this case, of course, the work of the Russian Federation with a variety of subjects continues. If to look at the same supermarkets or markets, the supply of agro-food products, jams, preserves and vegetables, I think that no one can say that this trade is not between Azerbaijan and Russia. Everything is just fine in this regard. In our turn, we try to keep it in the right field and minimize the number of obstacles from various bureaucratic institutions," said Mammadyarov.
