Ambassador Polukhov's remarks came during the reception marking the 106th anniversary of the Republic of Azerbaijan, held by the Azerbaijan embassy in Cairo on 28 May.

Government officials, the Parliament and Senate of Egypt, and representatives of the diplomatic corps of different countries were present. 

"Egypt and Azerbaijan are playing important roles regionally and globally, and our open and honest position regarding many issues of international agenda demonstrates a high level of cooperation not only bilaterally but also in multilateral flora," Dr. Polukhov noted. 

"This year Azerbaijan will host the COP-29, and Egypt which was the host of COP-27 shares with us its valuable experience in organizing this largest event with the UN. All of these efforts once again demonstrate the level of partnership between our countries," he added. 



“I should notice that the high level of political relations between our countries does not correspond to the level of economic cooperation, and in this regard, we have a lot of work ahead,” Dr. Polukhov affirmed.

“This celebration is a continuation of the first democracy in the Muslim East  Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. I want to underline that since regaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, Azerbaijan for the first time meets this date with the condition of fully restored sovereignty and integrity over all territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan," he stated.

"And we can proudly state that under the leadership of His Excellency President Ilham Aliyev, the country put an end to the more than 30 years old Armenian-Azerbaijan Nagorno Karabakh conflict,” Dr. Polukhov highlighted.

"It is also important to note that last year we celebrated the centenary of the birth of the National Leader of the Azerbaijani people, Heydar Aliyev, who in 1994 paid an official visit to Egypt. In this regard, together with our friends, several academic, sports, and cultural events were organized to mark this date, and we highly value the support given to us on this matter by our local partners,” the ambassador added.

Dr. Polukhov concluded: “During our history, both countries went through different territorial and political turmoil, but thanks to the wise policy of our political leaders we succeeded in building strong and prosperous countries where we are living now.”
