"Latvia always has been supportive of much deeper integration and cooperation between Azerbaijan and European Union, Azerbaijan and NATO," Latvia's former Defense Minister Artis Pabriks told APA.
"Because we understand Azerbaijan's interests. We are like translators and interpreters of your interests in the European Union and NATO. We will do anything we can simply to make this corporation deeper. Because this is in the interest of South Caucasus and Central Asia and globally interest. Azerbaijan is an extremely important geographic player in this region. NATO can not and should not ignore that," he said.
