Baku. Mubariz Aslanov – APA. Chief of socio-political department of the Presidential Administration Ali Hasanov has commented on the visa facilitation agreement signed between the European Union and Azerbaijan.

Hasanov told APA that the participation of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in the 3rd Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius and the signing of the visa facilitation agreement between the EU and Azerbaijan are serving the development of bilateral relations between the EU and our country: “In addition, I should note that first of all, President Ilham Aliyev approaches all issues, including further expansion of bilateral and multilateral cooperation in terms of Azerbaijan’s national interests. To benefit the potential of the influential international organizations for economic, social and humanitarian development of the country is one of the main principles of Azerbaijan’s foreign policy. Visa facilitation will strengthen contacts between Europe and Azerbaijan, facilitate our citizens’ business, tourist and other visits to Europe and eliminate red tape.”

Department chief said Azerbaijan participates in various international formats taking into account all regional interests.

“The major factor in our bilateral and multilateral cooperation is Azerbaijan’s national interests, this cooperation by no means undermines the relevant interests of other states of the region. This has been and will be so. In the future if the development of cooperation meets our national interests, we will take necessary steps, otherwise we will content ourselves with the existing format,” he said.
