Georgian President Touts Relations with Azerbaijan on Baku Visit

BAKU (Eurasianet)-The partnership between Georgia and Azerbaijan has become an informal confederation over the past few years, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili told reporters on Wednesday during a state visit to the Azerbaijani capital, Baku.

Mutual recognition of the need for territorial integrity and for diverse energy export routes drives the partnership, the Georgian leader affirmed. Azerbaijan’s Ilham Aliyev, meanwhile, stressed that the region’s peace and stability is contingent on “the brotherly relations” between the two countries, the APA news agency reported.

The two leaders discussed the prospects of expanding the South Corridor energy export route, and signed agreements on simplifying bilateral air communication and trade, and the mutual recognition of intellectual property rights.
