BAKU, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. President of Azerbaijan llham Aliyev has declared at a meeting with visiting Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin that "mutual trade might be boosted and that a bilateral dialogue might have a broader range".
"There are new opportunities that need immediate reaction," Aliyev said, adding that many problems on the agenda of Monday's talks with Dmitry Rogozin had been constructively discussed with President Vladimir Putin in Sochi. "Under the current cirsumstances, it is possible to increase mutual trade and broaden bilateral dialogue," Aliyev said.
For his part, Dmitry Rogozin praised contacts with the Azerbaijani leadership "that have recently become more intensive, which is a good sign". "The delegation, which is taking part in the talks, incorporates high-ranking officials vested with responsibility for the intensification of bilateral relations," Rogozin said.
Rogozin said he was ready "to give a new lease of life to the activity of the intergovernmental commission", which had not met for around three years. The meeting with President Aliyev was scheduled for a convenient time — shortly after the International Defense Industry Exhibition held in Baku, he said. Taking into account the opinions expressed by participants, the two countries may go ahead with the development of military-technical cooperation, Rogozin said.
During a visit to Azerbaijan, Rogozin laid a wreath to the grave of former president of Azerbaijan Heidar Aliyev, buried in the Alley of Honor, and brought flowers to the Alley of the Fallen Heroes — a burial place of the victims of the January 20, 1990 peaceful demonstration in Baku.
