This commitment was affirmed during a meeting between ADY Chairman Rovshan Rustamov, currently on an official visit to the People's Republic of China, and Liu Jenfang, Chairman of the state corporation "Chinese Railways."

The parties engaged in extensive talks on present and future cooperation between Azerbaijani and Chinese railways, addressing mutual concerns and interests.
