The Pakistani president’s visit to Azerbaijan should be regarded as a
great political event, Novruz Mammadov, head of the foreign relations
department of the Presidential Executive Staff, has told Olaylar news

Mammadov said that along with the fact that Pakistan is one of the
first countries to recognize Azerbaijan’s independence, there are
brotherly relations between the two countries. Novruz Mammadov
recalled that Pakistan supports Azerbaijan’s position on the
Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict: “Pervez Musharraf stated that he
regards Armenia as an occupier and at the same time, he said that the
occupier must withdraw from the occupied territories.”

agreements on expanding cooperation in the economic, cultural and
security spheres.
