Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met in Prague on 6 October 2022 on the margins of the first meeting of the European political community, at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron and European Council President Charles Michel.

Armenia and Azerbaijan reaffirmed their commitment to the UN Charter and the 1991 Alma Ata Declaration, in which both sides recognise each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. They confirmed that this will be the basis for the work of the border delimitation commissions and that the next meeting of the border commissions will take place in Brussels at the end of October.

Armenia has agreed to facilitate the deployment of an EU civilian mission along the border with Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan has agreed to cooperate with the mission as appropriate. The mission will start in October and will last for a maximum of two months. The aim of the mission is to build confidence and, through its reports, contribute to the work of the border commissions.

  • SHALVA PAPUASHVILI: PRESIDENTS EDUARD SHEVARDNADZE AND HEYDAR ALIYEV, ALONG WITH TURKISH LEADERS, ACHIEVED REMARKABLE FEATS BY ESTABLISHING FAR-SIGHTED PROJECTS THAT REVITALIZED THE ANCIENT TRADE ROUTES

    "I am happy to celebrate a historically important date for the Republic of Azerbaijan - Independence Day and Armed Forces Day with you", – the Speaker, H.E. Shalva Papuashvili stated at the reception dedicated to the 105th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
    As Shalva Papuashvili pointed out, Georgia and Azerbaijan are connected by a strong friendship and good neighborly relations.

    According to him, the friendship between the countries was based on the long historical ties and the difficult path that Georgia and Azerbaijan went through after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    "The simultaneous declaration of independence by our countries holds great historical significance, and it is remarkable that our ancestors celebrated the restoration of statehood at the same time 105 years ago. The strong friendship and good neighborly relations between Georgia and Azerbaijan are deeply rooted in our shared history and the challenging journeys we have undertaken to establish strong and independent states after the collapse of the Soviet Union. For the Georgian people, Azerbaijan is not just a neighbor but a close friend with whom we share profound mutual respect and cultural ties. Our relationship extends beyond strategic, political, and economic aspects, encompassing the deep connections between our peoples. The fruitful cooperation between our countries has evolved into a strategic partnership, yielding numerous positive outcomes for both nations. Dynamic cooperation in areas such as trade, economy, culture, and defense has further strengthened our bilateral relations", - Shalva Papuashvili noted.

    According to him, the regional energy and transport projects of international importance started three decades ago, and brought the two states closer economically and politically.

    "Presidents Eduard Shevardnadze and Heydar Aliyev, along with Turkish leaders, achieved remarkable feats by establishing far-sighted projects that revitalized the ancient trade routes. These initiatives have become a vital link between Europe and Asia, contributing to regional connectivity and economic development. However, at that time, some in the West underestimated the strategic importance of the Middle Corridor and the potential threats from Russia. Nevertheless, the wisdom and foresight of our region's people have been validated over time. Today, as the significance of the Middle Corridor continues to grow, our cooperation becomes even more relevant. We are prepared to work together on joint projects to enhance energy transportation routes and promote economic prosperity. I am pleased to see the successful development of parliamentary relations between our countries. In recent years, we have hosted each other's parliamentary leaders, fostering mutual understanding and collaboration. During my recent official visit to Azerbaijan, I had the honor of participating in events commemorating the 100th anniversary of President Heydar Aliyev's birth. This occasion highlighted the tremendous progress achieved by Azerbaijan, which has been further strengthened under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev", - Shalva Papuashvili added.
