Washington, October 19, AZERTAC

US Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), co-chair of the Congressional Azerbaijan Caucus, released the following statement marking the 25th National Independence Day in Azerbaijan:

“Today, Azerbaijan celebrates the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Constitutional Act “On the State Independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan,” said Congressman Cohen. “Since declaring its independence on October 18, 1991, Azerbaijan has become an important ally on global energy security, the fight against terrorism and preventing nuclear proliferation. It has also become a model for ethnic and religious tolerance in a secular and predominately Muslim nation. Azerbaijan should also be commended for having excellent relations with the State of Israel. I extend warm wishes to the people of Azerbaijan as they celebrate National Independence Day.”
