The message reads, in part:
“Much has been achieved in the past decades to promote Russia-Azerbaijan ties which rest on the good traditions of friendship and mutual respect. The constructive political dialogue and fruitful cooperation in trade, the economy, science and technology, culture and other areas are expanding. We are working together on strengthening stability and security in the South Caucasus region on the basis of trilateral agreements concluded last year and in 2020.
The current year was marked by a crucial achievement – the signing of the Declaration on Allied Interaction between Russia and Azerbaijan. I am sure that projecting the bilateral relations to a higher level meets the key interests of our peoples.”
