"Bulgaria and Azerbaijan are the strategic partners," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in the expanded meeting with Bulgarian President Rumen Radev, APA reports.
"You rightly noted that Bulgaria and Azerbaijan are strategic partners. The Declaration on strategic partnership was signed seven years ago, and over these years, this strategic partnership has manifested itself in a number of areas. I remember your official visit to Azerbaijan. The discussions and decisions we made during the visit are being implemented. As you have just mentioned, a very important event is taking place in Bulgaria tomorrow – we will celebrate the launch of the Greece-Bulgaria Interconnector project. I congratulate you from the very beginning on this occasion," said the head of state.
