Azerbaijan makes important contributions to the NATO mission in Afghanistan, Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg said at the press conference following the first meeting of the North Atlantic Council in Foreign Ministers’ session, ONA reports citing NATO's website.
"Azerbaijan is a close partner of NATO, and works with us in furthering international peace and security. Not least, Azerbaijan makes important contributions to the NATO mission in Afghanistan, by providing troops and assistance to NATO Allies on transit routes, on land, in the air and by rail, for example through the use of the BTK rail link. These are important contributions to the success of the NATO mission. And all our partners, including our partners in the Caucasus region, make valued contributions to our mission," Jens Stoltenberg said.
