Azerbaijan invites EU to observe upcoming presidential election
Azerbaijan has sent an invitation to the European Union for observation of the upcoming presidential election, Head of the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan, Ambassador Kestutis Jankauskas said on Friday.

At the meeting, Azerbaijan was represented by Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov. The upcoming election was one of the topics of discussion. EU High Representative Federica Mogherini said the EU hopes for open and democratic election in Azerbaijan. The EU always relies on the experience of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights. I know that they have received an invitation from Azerbaijan as well. At present, this issue is under consideration,” the envoy added.
