Azerbaijan is located in a complex, difficult region, its neighbors are different, David Merkel, Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs at the U.S. Department of State told APA.
The country should take into account Iran’s, Russia’s difficulties, even the USA’s demands and suggestions: “I can say that President Ilham Aliyev successfully manages these connections. He is purposeful and determined in his policy. There is stability in the region, in your country, which we do not see it in the Middle East. It is a success and I think that the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev, his foreign policy plays an important role here.”
