Presenting credentials to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, HE Ilham Aliyev

In a friendly and impressive ceremony at the presidential palace in Baku, I presented on November 14 my  credentials to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan,  HE Ilham Aliyev.

After the ceremony, we had a one to one meeting in which I extended the greetings of the President and Prime Minister of Albania to the head of state. I have stressed the importance of good relations between the Azerbaijan and Albanian people and discussed bilateral economic and cultural cooperation.

During our conversation, the head of state said that Azerbaijan is interested in expanding ties with Albania. Relations between Albania and Azerbaijan are strengthening and should continue to be reinforced in the future, said President Iham Aliyev.  The Trans Atlantic Pipeline energy project will eventually promote economic growth and  increase good opportunities for the development of cooperation in other economic spheres for both countries he added.

President Ilham Aliyev considers people to people contacts highly important, and is expecting more social activities and interaction between civil society of both countries. Azerbaijan and Albania cover each other from Ankara and Athens, but within the first months of 2014, embassies will be opened  in both respective countries.

At the end of our meeting,  President Alyev promised to visit Tirana soon , and congratulated the Embassy of Albania and the Azerbaijan Art Council for the photo exhibition on Albania which was opened in Baku on the occasion of the National Day of Albania . Special greetings from President Aliyev were conveyed in return to the president and Prime Minister of Albania.
