BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 20. Azerbaijan considers Tajikistan's participation in COP29 important, Minister of Economy of Azerbaijan Mikayil Jabbarov said during the Azerbaijan-Tajikistan business forum in Baku today, TurkicWorld reports.

"As you know, COP29, the next UN climate conference, will take place in Baku in November. While natural resources continue to play a decisive role in the economy of Azerbaijan, the country is committed to environmental protection.

We consider it important for our colleagues from Tajikistan to participate in this unique and scale platform, and we invite them to visit Baku again on the occasion of this event," he added.

To note, this November, Azerbaijan will host COP29. This decision was made at the COP28 plenary meeting held in Dubai on December 11 last year. Baku will become the center of the world and will receive about 70–80,000 foreign guests.
