BAKU, September 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Azerbaijan is ready to take part in investment projects in Afghanistan, the press service of President of Azerbaijan Ilkham Aliyev said Friday.
The press service quoted Aliyev as saying at a NATO summit in Wales that 40% of cargoes with no destructive power intended for Afghanistan are transported through the territory of Azerbaijan.
The construction of the Baku-Kars railroad, which nears completion, offers important transportation possibilities for "Resolute Support" operation in which Azerbaijan will take part in future, the press service said with reference to the president. "The railroad alongside with the biggest merchant sea port in the Azerbaijanian sector of the Caspian Sea will create tremendous trade and economic opportunities for Afghanistan and the whole region," the president said.
“Azerbaijan is ready to take part in investment and reconstruction projects in Afghanistan,” Aliyev said.
He pointed out that the Azerbaijanian military contingent takes part in the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) since it was established and that training programs for officials and law enforcers from Afghanistan were available in different academies in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan contributed €3 million to the Trust Fund of the national army of Afghanistan and €1 million for defense projects, Aliyev said, according to his press service.
