"Relations between Azerbaijan and Israel are of strategic importance," Israeli ambassador to Azerbaijan Dan Stav said at the constituent conference at the Azerbaijan-Israel International Association held in Baku, APA reports.

The ambassador said that relations between Azerbaijan and Israel are developing comprehensively, and they cover different areas. “I do not want to talk about defense and economic relations and energy. I want to focus on the relations between our peoples. The history of relations between our peoples is very ancient.”

Stav noted that the Jewish people have always been a part of the Azerbaijani community. "The Jews rejoiced and grieved together with the Azerbaijanis. Azerbaijan has always been an example of multiculturalism. Therefore, it is very important to protect the relations between our countries. The Israeli-Azerbaijani International Association, which is currently established in Azerbaijan, will contribute to the preservation of these relations. The Israeli Embassy is proud to be involved in such an important event.”
