Polad Bulbuloglu spoke in detail about the history of the conflict, the long-term and fruitless negotiation process between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the victory in the 44-day Patriotic War in 2020, as well as local anti-terrorist measures on September 19, 2023, during which our country restored its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The Azerbaijani Ambassador also informed John Geering about the reintegration process of the Armenian residents living in the Garabagh region into Azerbaijan's legal and socio-economic fields.

The Azerbaijani diplomat drew special attention to the fact that peace, stability, and security in the South Caucasus are possible only through the establishment of good neighbourly relations based on mutual respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of both countries.

During the meeting, issues of transport communications in the region were also discussed. Polad Bulbuloglu spoke about the current situation in the development of the North-South Corridor and the construction of a road through Iran, pointing out that Baku stands for the fastest possible restoration and opening of all communications in the region.

The Ambassador, John Geering, congratulated Azerbaijan on the choice of the city of Baku to host COP29 in 2024.

The conversation took place in a warm and trusting atmosphere. The parties discussed various topics on the agenda between the countries and exchanged views on other issues of mutual interest.
