We know well that it was Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and Heydar Aliyevich Aliyev who laid the foundation for friendly and neighborly relations between our countries in the early 2000s. In 2001, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin visited Azerbaijan, marking the beginning of a significant journey that we are undertaking together."
