President Ilham Aliyev has said that Romania plays important role in the Azerbaijan-NATO cooperation plan, Azertag reported on October 28.
He made the remarks while receiving the credentials of newly-appointed Romanian ambassador Vasile Soare on October 28.
“Of course, Romania plays a very important role in the Azerbaijan-NATO cooperation plan. For many years, Romania has played one of the most active roles in the strengthening of this cooperation,” he said.
Noting that Azerbaijan-Romania relations cover both the bilateral format and the format of cooperation within international organizations, Aliyev underlined that there are ample opportunities for cooperation in the economic, trade, energy, and transport fields.
He emphasized that Azerbaijan is making great efforts to turn the country into a transport and logistical center of Eurasia.
“And great work has been done in this direction. But a lot depends on bilateral relations. Therefore, the existing and planned infrastructure will create alternative opportunities for shippers,” the president said.
The president also expressed his hopes that the prospects for cooperation will be as good both in bilateral relations and within the framework of Azerbaijan-EU cooperation.
“Therefore, the existing and planned infrastructure will create alternative opportunities for shippers. Thus, we have always been open to cooperation with your country in all other areas. I think we will continue to do so on the basis of mutual interest,” Aliyev added.
