The Russian FM hailed the establishment of the Azerbaijan-Russia diplomatic relations whose history spanned 25 years. “Azerbaijan and Russia are actively collaborating in all areas, and make joint contributions to ensuring security in the Caucasus region and in the Caspian Sea. High level relations between the two countries’ presidents give a great impetus to the development of bilateral cooperation. Azerbaijan and Russia should take advantage of the inexhaustible potential of bilateral relations,” FM Lavrov said.
