U.S. to Expand Military Co-op with Azerbaijan

The U.S. is seeking to expand its military cooperation with Azerbaijan.

The U.S. Congress passed a bill, which proposes the President to expand military cooperation with Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.

The bill also includes an increase in aid from the U.S. and NATO to the security of these countries.

The bill provides the presentation of the status of U.S. allies to Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia without joining NATO.

The document was submitted to the relevant commission for its preparation for final reading.

Azerbaijan and the U.S. extended the agreement on military cooperation for five years in 2013, which is a vivid example of the high level military cooperation between the two countries.

Azerbaijan also supports the international peace keeping operations in Afghanistan. Currently, 90 Azerbaijani servicemen are serving as part of international forces in Afghanistan.

Azerbaijan is also among eight partner countries that have confirmed their presence in Afghanistan after 2014.
