Member of the working group on Azerbaijan Rodney Alexander has issued a statement in the House of Representatives of U.S. Congress on the launch of Azerbaijan`s first communications satellite Azerspace-1.
He said: “It`s a great example of how well-paying high-tech American jobs are being saved and protected, through international trade and cooperation with a rising and developing country like Azerbaijan.”
“Mr. Speaker, as a member of the House Azerbaijan Caucus, estimated this historical event as the vivid evidence of both countries` developing relations and congratulated Azerbaijan on the occasion of the successful launch of their first satellite (Azerspace-1).”
“Built in the United States, by Orbital Sciences Corporation, this historic event is yet another testament to the expanding relationship between our two countries and will provide important communications services to Azerbaijan, Central Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa.”
“The launch of Azerspace-1 is the culmination of hard work and cooperation between the Government of Azerbaijan and the US private sector. Along with recent purchases of aircraft from Boeing, Azerbaijan has placed their confidence in the United States aeronautics and aerospace sectors to help foster greater economic development. I urge my fellow colleagues to join me in congratulating Azerbaijan on this historic event.”/Trend/
