Strengthening the bilateral relations, as well as other issues were discussed at the meeting held between AZERTAC Board Chairman Aslan Aslanov and the delegation led by First Deputy Director General of UzA Sobir Shukurov.

“The brotherly Uzbekistan also stood by Azerbaijan during the 2020 second Karabakh war. Our countries and peoples have always supported each other and I’m sure that these ties will be further strengthened,” he said.

“Adequate expansion of cooperation between AZERTAC and UzA is important and timely,” added Aslanov.

Shukurov expressed his confidence that this visit would provide a good basis for developing bilateral relations [between the agencies].
