Head of the Delegation Mr Obrad Mišo Stanišić addressed the participants on this occasion, thanked to the Hungarian Ambassador for organising the meeting, and expressed pleasure for being present at the Roundtable and also with the visit of the NATO PA Sub-Committee to Azerbaijan, the country which is developing good bilateral and multilateral relations with the WB countries, referring in particular to cooperation with Montenegro. He stressed that Azerbaijan was in a very important geostrategic position, maintaining good relations with Russia, on the one hand, Iran and Turkey, on the other, as well as the countries of Western Europe. During his intervention, MP Stanišić noted that Azerbaijan was a wealthy country with the open conflict with Armenia in relation to Nagorno-Karabakh. In his conclusion, he said that if that problem had been solved and this open issue settled, Azerbaijan would have been an example of a country that had good relations with the countries of the West and East, with good economic and political future and perspective as well.
During the continuation of the visit, the participants toured the: Azerbaijani Center for Strategic Studies, Sangachal Terminal, Caspian Center for Energy and Terminal’s operation field.
