Staff writer |
Azerbaijan and Italy are moving successfully on all issues on the agenda, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said during a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta who arrived in Baku.

"We are moving successfully on all items on our agenda, including political, economic, and energy issues. Italy and Azerbaijan, through the years, managed to establish a very close partnership and, of course, in the coming years I am sure this partnership will grow and reach a very high level," President Aliyev said.

"We had this great opportunity of the decision about the energy pipeline. The decision on TAP is, of course, very important for Italy, and for big part of Europe. So, I take the opportunity of this decision to say how important for us is today to strengthen our joint relationship," Prime Minister Letta said.

The Italian PM underscored that it is important to strengthen the joint cooperation not only in energy field.

"We take the opportunity from the energy issues to strengthen and to elevate the cooperation to economic and to political issues. We had a very good cooperation in Afghanistan with our troops, and of course, we would like to have an important change in economic cooperation," Mr. Letta.
