Azerbaijan, Tajikistan Cooperation

Expressing that ties between Azerbaijan and Tajikistan have long been of a strategic partnership nature, Aliyev said they aim to develop active cooperation between both nations in all areas.

Aliyev also argued that he thinks it will be useful to join their efforts and coordinate with regard to the transport field due to the increasing popularity of the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route in Europe and Central Asia.
