I came to Serbia with a large delegation, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at a one-on-one meeting with President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade.

“I am very glad to be in your beautiful country and to continue the active dialogue. We meet very often in the international arena, during some international events, and also communicate by telephone. So, we are in touch. And we always contribute to the development of our bilateral ties, which now already have a character of strategic partnership. And this is not only the declaration which has been signed, but this is the substance of our cooperation. We always, as you mentioned, supported each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, and we will continue to do so. Also, we established very close personal ties with you, and we have deep mutual respect. This is one of the important elements of our bilateral cooperation.
