Speaker of Azerbaijan`s Milli Majlis Ogtay Asadov on Tuesday met with Porfirio Munoz Ledo, chairman of the committee on international relations of the Chamber of Deputies of the Mexican Congress.
Ogtay Asadov spoke about the development of Azerbaijan-Mexico relation. At his words, several Mexican delegations visited Azerbaijan in the past year. Expansion of relations with Mexican government and parliament is a priority for Azerbaijan foreign policy. We highly appreciate the resolutions of Mexican Parliament on January 20 tragedy, Khojali genocide as well as acknowledgment of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, Asadov stressed.
The Milli Majlis Speaker said that the political relations between the two countries are highly developed, but economic and trade turnover is not adequate to the today’s realities. We have opportunities for expansion of economic relations.
Asadov added that the opening of Mexican embassy in Baku will be in favour of both countries.
Porfirio Munoz Ledo expressed his gratitude for the visit to Baku. The Mexican MP said that the Parliaments play an important role in expansion of relations. Both chambers of Mexican Parliament are interested in cooperation with Azerbaijan.
