President Ilham Aliyev Receives Chairman of U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee and Congressmen

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev received Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the U.S. House of Representatives Ed Royce and a delegation of congressmen accompanying him.

Congressman Ed Royce hailed bilateral relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the USA as excellent.

The congressmen praised successful cooperation between the two countries in various areas, including energy, fight against terrorism and Afghanistan-related issues.

They also highly appreciated Azerbaijan's cooperation with European institutions.

The head of state expressed satisfaction with the development of bilateral relations between Azerbaijan and the United States.

President Ilham Aliyev said Azerbaijan attaches great importance to expanding cooperation between legislative bodies of the two countries.

Speaking of Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the head of state confirmed the country's position on the dispute. With Armenian armed forces still occupying 20 per cent of Azerbaijan's lands and over a million of Azerbaijanis refugees and IDPs, President Ilham Aliyev said it was important that the OSCE Minsk Group take concrete steps towards ensuring just settlement of the conflict within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

The sides agreed the visit of the U.S. delegation to Azerbaijan was a good opportunity for the congressmen to closely familiarize themselves with Azerbaijan as well as to define new areas of cooperation.
