Azerbaijan, Baku, July 12 / Trend E. Ismayilov /
Azerbaijani Minister of Industry and Energy Natig Aliyev has received a delegation headed by deputy chairman of the Mexican Senate Francisco Arroyo Vieira.
During the meeting the sides discussed the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as well as the Khojaly genocide. Natig Aliyev has expressed gratitude to the Mexican delegation because Mexico is one of the three countries which recognized the genocide in Khojaly.
The Minister said that the economic relations between the parties, as well as political, must also be at a high level, particularly in terms of the relations in the oil and gas sector.
It was stressed that both countries are engaged in oil production in the sea.

The great opportunities for cooperation in the non-oil sector were stressed during the meeting, spokesman for the Ministry of Industry and Energy Azer Mensimli told Trend today.
The sides discussed the opportunities of preparing and signing a bilateral document between the Azerbaijani Ministry of Industry and Energy and the Mexican Ministry. The document will define the framework for cooperation between the countries.
