"The official documents signed today have become a reality due to goodwill, trust, mutual respect, common interests and good-neighborly relations. Potential and opportunities for cooperation have existed for years. These opportunities served the interests of the two peoples. Mutual trust between the two countries today has increased even more. There has been more joint work between the two countries. Two peoples and two states have witnessed how useful and profitable cooperation is. Today we decided to strengthen the ties of this cooperation even more. It will be cooperation not only for today and tomorrow, perhaps it will be remembered for the history of the two countries. " said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in a joint statement to the press with the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.

"As Mr. President noted, the documents signed today are historical documents. These documents serve the interests of two peoples, they will benefit the region, as well as the whole world. Regarding the issue of transit, the North-South corridor connects the waters of the southern region of Iran, the Persian Gulf, the Oman Sea and the Indian Ocean, including road and rail links with the Caucasus, Central Asia and Russia, as well as with northern and eastern Europe. It shows the enormous importance of the North-South transport corridor. The decision of the two countries regarding the railroad of Rasht-Astara is an indicator of how important our states attach to this project. In the Caspian Sea, we have many common interests. We must get the maximum benefit cooperating in science, economics, commerce, shipping, fish farming and tourism. Our cooperation in the field of mutual use of resources and deposits of the Caspian Sea can today serve, in a broad sense, the interests of the two peoples," said H. Rouhani.

Hassan Rouhani also stressed that the issues existing in the region should find a solution in a political way: "We are convinced that the problem in Yemen must be resolved through political, not military means. We believe that the Syrian issue should also be resolved by political means. Azerbaijan and Iran share similar views on the efforts made by the countries of the region on this issue. We believe that the Karabakh problem should also be settled through political means. We want to witness the establishment of lasting stability in the region through the efforts of Azerbaijan and Armenia. We are pleased that diplomatic efforts are being made in this area. It is important for us that the territorial integrity of the countries and the geography of the region are not changed. International principles, to which the world community respects, should become an instrument for resolving the issue. Our desire at today's meeting and for the future is to strengthen the ties between Azerbaijan and Iran in the common interests of our states and the whole world and good relations between the two friendly states.
