Russian Foreign Ministry: The work of Russia-Azerbaijan-Iran format is actively developing

“There is an intensive political dialogue between the two countries at various levels and in various formats,” spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said at the briefing

“This is not only a bilateral format, and not only interaction at international platforms, but also, for example, the format of Russia-Azerbaijan-Iran summits. The work of this format will continue. I cannot announce it, because of the distribution of our functional duties. But I can say that this format is actively developing and it will certainly continue its activities.”

“At the end of last year, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Baku. This year, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov visited Moscow twice, on April 5 and April 14. Our diplomats maintain working-level contacts. We surely are committed to continuing the practice of holding regular consultations between the foreign ministries. The [Russia-Azerbaijan] Intergovernmental Commission on Economic Cooperation is actively working. Regular consultations are held between the relevant departments, in the mode of exchanging delegations, videoconferences, etc.”
