An agreement has been signed in Baku on the creation of scientific centers that will study the history of relations between Azerbaijan and China Oct. 14.

The document was signed by Director of the Institute of History at the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS), academician Yagub Mahmudov and Director of the Institute of General History of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), professor Wang Chaoguang.

In accordance with the agreement, bilateral relations from ancient times to the present day will be studied in the centers.
