British Minister talks on UK-Azerbaijan ties
"Our ties have grown at an astonishing rate in the fields of culture and education too. Growing numbers of young people in Azerbaijan want to study English, obtain a degree from a British University or work for one of the 450 British companies doing business in Azerbaijan. I am confident that people to people links can only deepen as our co-operation expands in the fields of art, literature, music, higher education, and sport", Duncan noted.
In addition, he stressed the importance of setting ambitious goals for the future:" We want to help Azerbaijan take its place as a modern, confident, prosperous, tolerant and democratic country. That’s why we see closer relations for Azerbaijan with the European Union as an important step to deliver beneficial reforms for the people of Azerbaijan".
