Azerbaijan Seeks Closer Partnership with Russia Print E-mail

Azerbaijan is pursuing a larger presence on the global stage.

According to the Voice of Russia, "There is a fairly realistic prospect that Azerbaijan will join either the Eurasian Economic Community or the CIS Customs Union, which includes Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia at present, Russia’s Regional Development Minister Igor Slyuniayev announces in the interview, published on Tuesday by the Russian Business Gazette."

Sluyniav is quoted as saying that, "Eurasec is a strategic project - both economically and politically and that’s why Azerbaijan’s cooperation with either Eurasec or the Customs Union is quite a realistic prospect. I wouldn’t even exclude such course of events."

According to the Voice of Russia, "He recalls that Russian President Vladimir Putin had invited Azerbaijan, traditional and reliable partner of Russia during his visit to Baku last year. Putin said that Russia and Azerbaijan were cooperating closely in the Caucasian and Caspian region, in the CIS, in leading international organizations, adding that this cooperation was traditionally based on friendship and mutual respect between the nations and states."

Azerbaijan could become a stronger global player by joining in on with the Eurasia League.
