Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Selakovic met today in Baku with Minister of Defence Industry of Azerbaijan Madat Guliyev, with whom he discussed the possibilities of deepening cooperation in this area.
Selakovic expressed satisfaction with the excellent bilateral relations, especially thanking Azerbaijan for its principled position when it comes to non-recognition of the unilaterally declared independence of the so-called Kosovo, and the support it provides to our country in preserving territorial integrity and sovereignty.
He confirmed Serbia’s position on respecting international law and the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan.
The head of Serbian diplomacy pointed out that, on the basis of strategic partnership and friendship between the two countries and excellent relations between our presidents, it is necessary to strengthen cooperation in all fields.
The Minister said that there is a clear commitment of the two sides to work on strengthening military-technical and military-economic cooperation, as well as to continue and further intensify the existing cooperation with relevant institutions and companies in this area.
During his visit to Baku, he also met with the Minister of Economy of Azerbaijan Mikail Yabarov and reiterated that bilateral relations are very good, characterized by meaningful political and friendly ties and mutual support for territorial integrity and sovereignty, as well as significant space and potential for improvement of economic cooperation.
Selakovic expressed his belief that in the coming period, the political dialogue at the highest and high level will be further intensified, and thus the strategic relations between the two countries will be made more dynamic and better.
In that context, as he assessed, the upcoming visit of President Aliyev to Serbia in October will be historic for political cooperation, but also a flywheel for strengthening economic relations.
The officials discussed the improvement of economic cooperation and agreed that there are potentials for its strengthening in numerous areas, especially agriculture, construction, transport, energy and information technology.
