  President Ilham Aliyev: It is gratifying that Azerbaijan-UK ties are further growing and deepening

“We attach great significance to forged relations of friendship and multifaceted cooperation between Azerbaijan and the United Kingdom. It is gratifying that our ties, rooted in fine traditions, are further growing and deepening year by year,” said President Ilham Aliyev in his message of congratulations to Rishi Sunak as he begins his tenure as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

“Presently, the scope of the issues on our bilateral agenda is considerably extensive. The United Kingdom is a top investor country in Azerbaijan and is among our major trading partners. Engagement between our countries in the political, cultural, educational and other domains is also developing dynamically.

I would particularly highlight the time-tested strategic partnership ties between Azerbaijan and the United Kingdom in the energy area. We highly appreciate our countries’ close partnership on energy security matters and the United Kingdom’s close involvement and support for the large-scale projects we implement,” the head of state emphasized.

“The involvement of the companies from the United Kingdom in the major restoration and reconstruction efforts across the territories we liberated from occupation two years ago is commendable. We welcome the UK’s contribution to the work on mine clearance and elimination of unexploded ordnance as they remain a significant impediment to the socioeconomic reintegration of East Zangazur and Karabakh regions,” the President said in his letter.

“I am confident that we will successfully continue our joint efforts to cement the friendship between Azerbaijan and the United Kingdom, deepen our bilateral ties in every field and further expand our mutually beneficial cooperation,” the head of state noted.
