"Azerbaijan attaches a great importance to cooperation with the United States," - he said, expressing satisfaction with the development of cooperation in the political, economic and humanitarian spheres.

According to him, cooperation on issues such as energy security of the world, the fight against international terrorism, participation in joint peacekeeping operations had a positive impact on the relationship between the countries as a whole.
