Baku, March 19, AZERTAC
"We strengthen our country with our successful policy. If you look at history, Azerbaijan has never been as powerful as now. Our successful policy, regional initiatives, energy, transportation projects form international cooperation in a broader sense. We brought our philosophy to international cooperation," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev as he addressed Novruz festivities in Baku.
"International cooperation should be successful for everyone involved. This cannot be by force. No country should be forcibly engaged in any initiative. This will not be effective."
"Therefore our international cooperation doctrine is built on cooperation and mutual support," the head of state added.
