The peoples of Azerbaijan and Georgia, who have coexisted peacefully in the South Caucasus region for millennia, have strong historical, cultural, economic, and trade links that are founded on mutual respect and trust – writes Mazahiras Afandijevas.

The wise peoples of Azerbaijan and Georgia have a long history of cordial interactions. Our relationships’ pasts demonstrate how closely related and similar our fates are. We learn from this historical experience to work as a team, to defend our independence, to maintain regional peace and security, and to assimilate into global society.

One of Azerbaijan’s primary objectives following its second independence in 1991 was to forge close ties with its neighbours and safeguard security in the South Caucasus. Thanks to his friendship with Georgia’s president Eduard Shevardnadze, which dates back to Soviet times, national leader Heydar Aliyev skillfully used his experience and opportunities to strengthen good-neighbourly relations between Georgia and Azerbaijan when he announced the country’s foreign policy priorities in 1993. As a result, initiatives to strengthen the historical bonds between our people were recognized, along with new efforts against conflict hotspots in the South Caucasus.

In addition to being friends and neighbours, Azerbaijan and Georgia are now significant strategic allies. The cornerstone of our nations’ strategic alliance is the “Agreement on Strengthening Friendship, Cooperation, and Mutual Security between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Georgia,” which was signed on March 8, 1996. Over 125 documents have been signed between our countries so far, following a number of high-level visits between us in the recent past.

Dabar vykstantys tradiciniai susitikimai skatina Gruzijos ir Azerbaidžano tautų draugystę ir draugiškumą. Aukštą dvišalį bendradarbiavimą tarp mūsų dviejų tautų dar labiau pademonstravo 16 m. kovo 2024 d., kai Azerbaidžane su oficialiu vizitu lankėsi Gruzijos ministras pirmininkas Irakli Kobakhidze.

“The two brotherly countries will move forward shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, and solve all the tasks ahead together,” President Ilham Aliyev stated in his press statement. This suggests that our current political and economic ties will continue to grow more dynamic and that significant energy, transportation, and logistics projects will be carried out successfully by applying a methodology grounded in the contemporary challenges of the South Caucasus.

Among these initiatives was the UN Development Program’s Regional Assistance Program on the South Caucasus Regional Drug Control Program (SCAD), which unites the governments of Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan and is sponsored by the European Union. It is noteworthy that this project encompasses several domains like law, healthcare, security, education, and border integration. Additionally, it offers the establishment of a cooperative framework and the execution of coordinated collaborative initiatives.

Dėl to nuoširdūs santykiai, kurių liudininkai buvome, ir tradiciniai mūsų rengiami susitikimai labai prisideda prie žmonių gerovės didinimo ir įgalinimo „New Horizons“ sėkmingai tęsti socialinį politinį Pietų Kaukazo gyvenimą.

Pagaliau Azerbaidžanas artėja prie saugumo atkūrimo rajone, išvadavęs savo teritoriją iš 30 metų trukusios okupacijos. Manome, kad kitos Pietų Kaukazo šalys, be Azerbaidžano, tinkamai pripažins šį istorinį šansą garantuoti bendrą ateitį naujoje politinėje santvarkoje, pagrįstoje šiuolaikiniais iššūkiais, o gyvenimas Pietų Kaukaze bus visiškai saugus, taikus ir klestintis.
