We are building our relations on the basis of this understanding. I am very pleased that Iranian-Azerbaijani relations have been developing very fast in recent years. In the 25 years of our history, this has been a period of rapid, perhaps, the most rapid development. Over the period since February, many issues have been resolved in the economic, transport and energy sectors.

For centuries, our peoples have lived together, side by side, in the conditions of friendship and good neighborliness. The history, culture and religion that have united us for centuries are our greatest common assets.

As part of my official visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran, more than 10 documents were signed. Less than six months later, six more documents have been signed. This is very important for our future activities. The documents and agreements signed in Iran in February are being executed.

Аzerbaijan has always opposed the sanctions applied against Iran and openly expressed its position. We are very pleased that these sanctions have now been lifted, and thus there are new opportunities for cooperation. Iran, for its part, has always respected the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and supported Azerbaijan's fair position in the settlement of Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. This support manifests itself within the framework of the UN and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

I am glad that the foundation of a plant was laid in the city of Neftchala on the eve of this visit yesterday, where “Iran Khodro” will produce cars. This is a perfect example of our cooperation. Each year more than 10,000 cars will be manufactured there, and this is a new form of cooperation. There was no such cooperation before.

Of course, we are opening up opportunities to address energy and transport issues. I am glad that the Imishli-Parsabad line has been connected. This will have a very positive impact on the relations between our countries and regional cooperation. Very important steps have also.

Today, you have also witnessed the signing of many documents. The implementation of these documents will further strengthen our ties. The documents on many areas point the way to the future. The essence of these documents is very positive. One part one of them serves bilateral ties and the other is aimed at multilateral and regional cooperation.

Today, very important steps have been taken to create the North-South transport corridor. By commissioning this road, we will link continents by means of excellent transport infrastructure. The task that falls on Azerbaijan will be completed before the end of this year, and we will lay our railroad to the border with Iran.

In recent years, Azerbaijan and Iran have become very important partners of the North-South transport corridor. Having taken the necessary measures to expand the transit opportunities of our republic, we have reorganized our transport infrastructure in line with the latest standards. We are confident that the commissioning of the railway between the Iranian and Azerbaijani Astara will significantly revitalize the North-South transport corridor.

In general, transport and communication corridors are of great economic and geopolitical importance for all participating countries, including us. These corridors, on the one hand, will substantially increase the share of our countries in international freight traffic and, on the other, strengthen our bilateral cooperation in the economic sphere.
