Azerbaijan’s Prime Minister Ali Asadov has met with India’s Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Anupriya Patel, press service of the Cabinet of Ministers told APA.
The sides underlined the importance of the meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission on trade, economic, scientific and technological cooperation between the Government of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Government of the Republic of India held in Baku.
They expressed confidence that the decisions taken and the documents signed at the meeting would give an impetus to the development of relations between the two countries.
Sharing his views on the ongoing processes in the region following the second Garabagh War, the Prime Minister said that despite the serious efforts of Azerbaijan in the past period, Armenia refused to withdraw its armed forces from the territory of Garabagh, continuously violated the negotiation process by evading its obligations, and resorting to various military provocations.
The PM noted that now historic conditions have been created for the normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations, the signing of a peace treaty and the establishment of peace in the South Caucasus. He pointed out that the active arming of the Armenian side at such a sensitive moment seriously undermines the peace process and creates new threats to peace and stability in the South Caucasus region.
