“These projects do not contradict international laws,” said the Azerbaijani defence minister. “I can confidently say that the equipment received within the framework of military-technical cooperation is of high quality. Currently it is successfully applied in the Azerbaijani Armed Forces. Thus, we have an opportunity to continue and even expand the cooperation. And we are looking forward to this.”
Colonel General Hasanov Zakir Asgar oglu also held talks with Major General Oleg Dvigalev, Chairman of the Belarusian State Military Industrial Committee, on 9 October. The parties discussed current issues of Belarus-Azerbaijan military-technical cooperation and outlined the plan for its further development.
