Chief of Army Staff of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the meeting with President Ilham Aliyev congratulated the head of state on the historic victory in the Second Karabakh War, APA reports.
"Mr. President. First of all, it is a great honor for me to meet with you. First, may I please ask you to accept my sincere congratulations on the historic victory you won by defeating Armenia and returning your territories. I think this is a great event for every Muslim and every Pakistani. Despite the bias against your country, you have restored your territorial integrity. I sincerely congratulate you. Secondly, I would like to note that one of my friends came to Azerbaijan in 1993 and was very disappointed at that time. He visited here last year and was impressed, saying that under the leadership of your father, who was a prominent figure, and under your leadership Azerbaijan has developed over the past 30 years. He noted that he appreciates it.
Your Excellency, Turkey is one of our common partners. Just as you say that you are “one nation, two states”, Turkey is close to our hearts too. Our closest relations in the world are with Turkey. The close ties between the three countries open up ample opportunities for our cooperation. There are many opportunities for us to consider in Azerbaijan, and our businessmen can visit here," noted Qamar Javed Bajwa.
