Russia and Azerbaijan: A model of independent yet interconnected relations

    POLITICS  28 May 2024 - 09:34

    "Russia and Azerbaijan are closely interconnected while preserving their independence.”

    Such a system of bilateral relations serves as an example for other countries, Chairman of the Azerbaijani Milli Majlis (Parliament) Committee on International Relations and Interparliamentary Ties Samad Seyidov told TASS.

    "Let Azerbaijani-Russian relations be an example, because today Russia and Azerbaijan, having a treaty of alliance, show an example of independent development. It is an amazing thing - today Azerbaijan and Russia are very closely interconnected, being independent," he said.

    He noted that Moscow and Baku "managed to create a new geopolitical system of relations in the region".

    "These are relations based on mutual respect, these are relations based on the interests of both states, these are relations that comply with international rules and norms of behavior, which is what the international community lacks today. Therefore, today Azerbaijani-Russian relations can be cited as an example for other states on how to establish relations between states, especially in our region,” Seyidov emphasized.

    Seyidov noted that any attempts to create a rift in bilateral relations will not succeed. Russia and Azerbaijan value their common history and do not reject the past, but draw valuable lessons from it for the further development of relations.

    "We have also broken the stereotype artificially created by certain circles that it is dangerous to be friends with Russia and that Azerbaijan cannot be trusted. Russia now trusts Azerbaijan at a very high level, Azerbaijan also trusts Russia at a very high level, and this friendship and trust bring very concrete and practical results to both Russia and Azerbaijan,” he added.
