“The head of state underscored that the agreement achieved by the delimitation commission of both countries was the outcome of bilateral discussions conducted in a spirit of dialogue and mutual understanding.

Aliyev, according to the statement, emphasized that Azerbaijan will make every effort to continue the peace agenda, noting that Baku has a strong political will for this.
