"Azerbaijan's foreign policy is principled and independent. I think that this is why we have great prestige on the international arena, and today Azerbaijan is recognized as a very reliable partner, a worthy state on a global scale," President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at a commencement ceremony held at ADA University, APA reports.
The Head of State noted that the number of countries wishing to cooperate with the country is gradually growing with Azerbaijan, and Azerbaijan defends its national interests in all international arenas: "Our foreign policy is a continuation of domestic policy, it is designed to enhance the international authority of the country and ensure its economic interests. "is recognized as a very reliable partner, a worthy state on a global scale"
"It is not an easy issue to pursue an independent policy, especially in our region and in the current conditions, but our position has always been to ensure that we guarantee the interests of the people through our independent policy." The interests of the Azerbaijani people are paramount for us. I think we managed to achieve great respect, as demonstrated by the election of us to the UN Security Council, 155 countries, having confidence in Azerbaijan, elected us as a member of the Security Council, which is the most influential structure in the world. This is a clear example of our international prestige, and several years have passed since that day, I am absolutely sure that today Azerbaijan is a country worthy of stronger foundations and respect in the international plane," Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said.
