The prime minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili, paid an official visit to Azerbaijan on Wednesday (5 May), during which he had talks with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and other senior officials.
Welcoming the Georgian prime minister at the presidential complex in Baku, President Aliyev said:
"Relations between our peoples are based on a long history, a history of good neighborliness and friendship that has lasted for centuries. I think this is a very good basis for the development of our current relations, which demonstrate great dynamics and, in fact, cover many areas. I am very glad that you are visiting us ... We have a good history of joint projects such as energy and transport projects. These projects have changed the political, economic, transport and energy map of the region. Without strong partnerships between our countries, the implementation of these projects would not be possible."
Garibashvili invited Aliyev to visit Tbilisi at a convenient time in the near future.
Garibashvili later tweeted:
Had an excellent meeting with @presidentaz about 🇬🇪-🇦🇿 strategic partnership. Discussed topics of mutual interest, incl the importance of peaceful conflict-resolution, co-op in the field of economy, energy & trade, along with projects of regional magnitude. pic.twitter.com/yf5IrQiGcT— Irakli Garibashvili (@GharibashviliGe) May 5, 2021
