“During the process of Azerbaijan’s joining the Council of Europe, we faced with one question: does Azerbaijan belong to Europe or to Asia?” Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said at the 1st panel discussion titled “Achievements and Challenges in Delivering Concrete Results to Citizens” at the conference dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the Eastern Partnership Program.
He said that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, he was involved in such discussions.
“Now we see that the choice has already been made. But the South Caucasus can become a more open region. Three countries can develop more. The desire of the region’s people is that we have to solve what happened in the past and look at the future. This is the best way to promote our countries’ national interests.”
