"In the name of Allah. Mr. President, my greetings and wishes of good health and success to you and all the people of Azerbaijan. I convey to you the sincere greetings of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Dr. Raisi," Minister of Road and Urban Development of the Islamic Republic of Iran, co-chair of Azerbaijan-Iran Joint Intergovernmental Commission on Economic Cooperation Rostam Ghasemi said as he was received by the President Ilham Aliyev in a video format on January 25, APA reports.
"On behalf of the Iranian state and people, I personally congratulate you, the Azerbaijani state, and the Azerbaijani people, on your success in returning the territories and on your victory in this war. As you mentioned, the meeting between you and Mr. President will open a new page in the relations between the two countries.
We saw the liberated areas yesterday and got acquainted with the construction and reconstruction work carried out there. I do hope that in my meetings with Mr. Shahin Mustafayev and other ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan today, we will once again exchange views on the relations between the two countries and joint projects.
During the 13th government, i.e. the presidency of Mr. Ebrahim Raisi, our state intends to expand cooperation with all neighboring countries, especially with the state and people of the Republic of Azerbaijan, which has more cultural, historical, and social ties with Iran," noted Minister.
