"Azerbaijan is also actively involved in response to the COVID crisis at a multilateral level and it has allocated 10 million USD to World Health Organization," said Elmar Mammadyarov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan at the Video-Teleconference Meeting of Eastern Partnership Ministers of Foreign Affairs held on 11 June 2020, APA reports.
"Also, we have extended bilateral assistance to 14 countries upon their request. Today, Azerbaijan is in the top list of the countries providing humanitarian assistance in the fight against COVID-19 and this testifies to our commitment to solidarity and cooperation.
The EU Joint Communication on the future of EaP places a strong focus on bilateral cooperation. Tailor made approach is a very policy which Azerbaijan seeks in its relations with the EU. It is a partnership based on equality and mutual respect. The success of the negotiations on a new bilateral agreement will depend on the flexibility of negotiating sides to find mutually acceptable solutions to the remaining issues," E. Mammadyarov said.
