Azerbaijani FM meets with his Saudi counterpart
Baku, September 21, AZERTAC
Azerbaijan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeyhun Bayramov has met with Foreign Minister of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud on the sidelines of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.
During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on political, economic, energy security, humanitarian and a number of other issues on the agenda of bilateral cooperation, and emphasized the importance of high-level reciprocal visits.
Highlighting the recent developments in the region, Minister Jeyhun Bayramov emphasized that the fact that Armenian armed forces have not yet withdrawn from the territory of Azerbaijan after the 44-day Patriotic War was the major threat to peace and security in the region.
“The representatives of the so-called puppet regime resorted to a number of large-scale military provocations and terrorist attacks in the Karabakh economic region of Azerbaijan on September 19. Local counter-terrorism measures have been launched in the region to prevent these large-scale provocations, ensure the implementation of the provisions of the Trilateral Statement, as well as the withdraw of units of the armed forces of Armenia from the territories of Azerbaijan, and restore the constitutional order of the Republic of Azerbaijan,” Bayramov underlined.
During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on other issues of mutual interest.
