The aim of the visit is to discuss mutual cooperation between the ruling parties of the two countries, as well as exchange views over prospects for friendly and cooperative relations.

On February 15, the Azerbaijani delegation met with secretary general of Japanese Liberal Democratic Party Sadakazu Tanigaki. Mr. Tanigaki hailed Azerbaijan`s achievements, saying the country skillfully used its energy resources.

He stressed that the success was achieved thanks to national leader Heydar Aliyev`s and President Ilham Aliyev`s leadership.

She noted Azerbaijan paid special attention to relations with Japan, adding there were wide opportunities for the development of cooperation between the two friendly countries.

Mrs. Fataliyeva spoke of the dynamic development of Azerbaijan, adding “despite the country is located in a volatile region, Azerbaijan pursues an independent and active foreign policy.”

Diplomatic relations between Azerbaijan and Japan were established in 1992. Relations between the two countries have continued to develop steadily. Japan was one of the first countries to support Azerbaijan's forward-looking oil strategy.
