- Mr. President, thank you for the kind words and the warm welcome. I am very pleased to come here again after the visit in 2011. I have very good recollections of my previous visit when the Joint Declaration on the Southern Gas Corridor was signed. This project is well under way now. I was honored to welcome you to Brussels in July of last year. We also met at the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius. I am pleased that our meetings have become frequent.

When I arrived here last night, I witnessed the extent of change Baku has been gong through. There are many changes for the better since 2011. I congratulate you on that. Mr. President, I can see the effort you, the Azerbaijani Government and people are making to create a more modern, stable and developed country. I would also like to congratulate you not only on the diplomatic, but also on other important international successes, including the Eurovision song contest and the victory of a Spanish team supported by your country in the Spanish championship.
