Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan are located in regions that require daily attention to issues of security and defense capabilities, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said making a press statement together with President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, TurkicWorld reports.
"I would like to specifically note the emerging cooperation in the military and military-technical spheres. This area is a priority for each country, and even more so for our countries as we are located in regions that require daily attention to issues of security and defense capabilities. Therefore, I think what we agreed on today will be fulfilled. We will actively communicate on the exchange of experience, cooperation in the military-technical sphere, the educational sphere of the defense sector, and we will also plan steps that will mutually strengthen our security.
The Declaration was signed today. The Political Declaration essentially takes our relations to a qualitatively new level. And, of course, mutual support – be it within the framework of international organizations or other issues related to the security of our countries and peoples – naturally requires constant attention. This will be done because there is political will for this," the head of state said.
