Moscow. Farid Akberov – APA. “Russia hopes that Azerbaijan will join the Customs Union,” said Leonid Slutskiy, chairman of the Russian State Duma committee for CIS affairs and relations with compatriots, at the briefing at RIA Novosti information agency, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.


Slutskiy said that Azerbaijan had achieved qualitative development of its economy under difficult conditions: “Azerbaijan became an independent country in terms of energy a few years ago. It was inaccessible at those times. The victories of the Azerbaijani government show that the people highly estimate the results. We hope Azerbaijan will join the Customs Union. However, it will happen a bit later. It will happen, when the Azerbaijani government estimates its unambiguous positive impact on the country’s economy.”
