"As you know now both BP and Azerbaijan are very actively working on renewable sources of energy. I just received information recently from our minister that there is a plan to invest in solar power generation on the liberated areas which will be very helpful to us especially with respect to the fact that we announced liberated territories of Karabakh as a territory of green energy and smart city," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as he received UK Minister for Exports Graham Stuart on May 21, APA reports.
"At the same time, I would like to say that we already invited British companies as our partners, among the first foreign companies to work with us on the restoration, reconstruction of the liberated territories and this process already started. Cities’ master plans have already been prepared and we are in a very active phase. We want to expand cooperation with British companies, as companies from a friendly country. I am sure that during the session of the commission this issue also will be discussed. So, really we have very broad agenda of bilateral cooperation. Once again welcome to Azerbaijan," noted the head of state.
