"Azerbaijan and Jordan enjoy excellent friendly and brotherly relations," said president of the Greater Amman Municipality GAM committee Yousef Shawarbeh as he met with Azerbaijani ambassador to Jordan Sabir Aghabayov.
Shawarbeh said he heard a lot about Azerbaijan and its Baku. He said his invitation to the 4th World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue to be held this May in Baku will be a good opportunity to familiarize himself with the country and its capital, Azertac reported.
Ambassador Aghabayov expressed his confidence that bilateral relations between the two countries will be further strengthened.
They hailed the positive impact of personal friendly relationship of President Ilham Aliyev with the King Abdullah II on the development of Azerbaijan-Jordan bilateral relations. They also discussed cooperation within international organizations, development of economic relations, high–level reciprocal visits and a Jordanian delegation's participation in the 4th Islamic Solidarity Games to be held in Baku.
The Azerbaijani ambassador described the fact that there is a street and a square named after national leader Heydar Aliyev in Amman as a shining example of friendly and brotherly relations between the two countries.
Ambassador Aghabayov highlighted the history of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, aggression and ethnic cleansing policy carried out by Armenia, genocides committed against the people of Azerbaijan, official Baku's stance on the settlement of the dispute, successful April battles and the reconstruction works carried out in the liberated Azerbaijani territories.
The ambassador commended Jordan's fair and firm position on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
