Azerbaijan and Ukraine are interested in developing the military-technical cooperation, said Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev.

It is important to establish a joint industrial complex between the two countries, President Aliyev said at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko in Baku July 14.

He noted that there are good opportunities to develop either the heavy industry, or the military-technical cooperation.

Ilham Aliyev added that Azerbaijan and Ukraine are interested in implementing the Odesa-Brody project for oil transportation.

“We have seriously discussed the Odesa-Brody project because Azerbaijan supplies large volumes of oil to the European market,” he said.

The presidents also discussed the possibility of creating a joint venture for production of An-178 aircraft in Azerbaijan.

“One of the most promising projects are supplies of Ukrainian An-178 transport aircraft to Azerbaijan and joint production of these aircraft in future, in particular in the territory of Azerbaijan,” Poroshenko said at the conference.
