He made the remarks during the joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin June 7.

 

Azerbaijan and Russia have also good relations in the fields of security, transport and trade, President Aliyev said, noting that Azerbaijan sees Russia as a strategic partner.

 

The fact that Russia is selling weapons to Armenia doesn't create any allergy in Azerbaijan, the president stressed. 

 

The allergy is in Armenia, for the fact that Russia sells weapons to Azerbaijan, President Aliyev said adding that unlike Armenia, Azerbaijan paid the full price for the weapons, and Russia is not the only country where Azerbaijan purchases weapons.

 

“Azerbaijan buys weapons not only from Russia, but also from Turkey, Israel, Belarus and Iran. We should provide our armed forces with sophisticated weapons as a state that is suffering from occupation and located in complicated geopolitical configuration,” Ilham Aliyev said.

 

Russia is one of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries, he said adding that Azerbaijan commends Russia’s role within the framework of the Minsk Group.  

 

President Aliyev expressed hope that Russia, France and the United States, using its full potential, will persuade Armenia to withdraw its forces from the occupied Azerbaijani territories.
