President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has met with European Commission Executive Vice-President for European Green Deal, Interinstitutional Relations and Foresight Maroš Šefčovič in Munich, at the latter’s request.

Maroš Šefčovič hailed the successful development of cooperation between Azerbaijan and the European Union in the energy sector. He commended Azerbaijan's role as a pan-European energy supplier. Expressing his intention to visit Azerbaijan soon, Maroš Šefčovič highlighted that COP29 creates good opportunities for cooperation between Azerbaijan and the European Union in the fields of renewable energy and combating climate change.
