Azerbaijan, Georgia to mull strengthening cooperation

By: Aynur Karimova

Baku and Tbilisi will discuss ways to strengthen bilateral cooperation as part of Georgian Interior Minister Giorgi Mghebrishvili’s visit to Azerbaijan which started on November 26.

The Georgian embassy in Baku told Trend that during his visit, Mghebrishvili will hold meetings with Azerbaijani officials to discuss the issues of further strengthening cooperation between the two neighboring countries.

Azerbaijan and Georgia established diplomatic relations in 1992, one year after gaining independence from the Soviet Union. In October 1997, Azerbaijan and Georgia became two of the four founding members of GUAM, an organization that also includes Ukraine and Moldova.

Today, the two countries are successfully cooperating in the political field, and strategic cooperation between Azerbaijan and Georgia is developing from day to day.

The two neighboring countries enjoy not only good political relations, but also long-standing and successful cooperation in the energy sector. Further, Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR is deeply involved in the energy market in the neighboring South Caucasus republic.

Azerbaijan has long been one of Georgia’s largest trade partners, with trade turnover between the two countries reaching $1.35 billion in 2014.

Azerbaijan mainly exports petroleum, petroleum oils and gases, gypsum, anhydrite, plaster and other products to Georgia, while motor cars, live bovine animals, bars and rods of iron, as well as cement, make up the majority of imported goods from Georgia to Azerbaijan.
