U.S. Ambassador: Azerbaijan Plays Significant Regional and Global Role

The U.S. Embassy in Baku celebrated the Independence Day of the United States on Wednesday. The event was attended by Azerbaijani officials, MPs, members of the public, ambassadors of foreign countries in Azerbaijan.

The U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan Richard Morningstar said that the 237th Independence Day of his country was celebrated, and told about the history of the USA.

The ambassador also touched upon the bilateral relations between the U.S. and Azerbaijan.

"Azerbaijan has established itself as a truly independent state playing a significant regional and global role. Who imagined 25 years ago that a country named Azerbaijan would seat as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, Azerbaijani soldiers would be standing shoulder to shoulder with ours in Afghanistan or that Azerbaijani oil and gas would be providing Europe with a more stable secure energy future", said the ambassador.

At the event was also the Minister of Finance Samir Sharifov, who on behalf of the Government of Azerbaijan congratulated the people of the United States.
