There are good opportunities for expanding cooperation between AZERTAC and Jiji Press, said Director General of AZERTAC Aslan Aslanov as he met with Editor-in-Chief of Jiji Press Okuyama Masashi, who will attend the 5th Baku International Humanitarian Forum.

Mr Masashi said he paid his first visit to Azerbaijan 25 years ago, adding that Baku has changed a lot.
He said he wants to meet with Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs.
Mr Masashi said Jiji Press was interested in expanding cooperation with AZERTAC.
Mr Aslanov expressed AZERTAC`s readiness to assist Jiji Press Editor-in-Chief in meeting with IDPs and producing a material on Azerbaijan’s realities.
