President had a telephone conversation with Azerbaijan’s President

Tuesday, June 30, Vilnius - Today President of the Republic of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus talked on the phone with President lham Aliyev of Azerbaijan.

The President thanked his Azerbaijani counterpart for a particularly close, warm and meaningful bilateral cooperation in the past few years. "We have managed to bring closer together not only our people and business communities but also our regions. We have opened the windows to our cultural, economic and business interrelations," President Adamkus said thanking for the Azerbaijani President's personal contribution to the development of bilateral relations.


President Aliyev noted that Lithuania and Azerbaijan came closer together thanks to the joint projects of Vilnius and Baku: the Vilnius Conference and a number of meetings by the heads of states on energy issues in Vilnius, Krakow, Kiev and Baku.


The President of Azerbaijan said the South Caucasian region would miss President Adamkus's vision and attention, and expressed hope the two states would continue their cooperation in many fields.


The two Heads of States also talked about the energy dialogue between the European Union and Azerbaijan and the development of energy-related projects in the region. President Aliyev underlined that Europe remained a very important partner for Azerbaijan.


Lithuania's President said he was confident Europe would seek to develop further a coordinated external energy policy, and such projects as Nabucco would be effectively implemented to ultimately connect Europe and the South Caucasian countries.


President Adamkus noted that UNESCO, too, was adding to Lithuanian-Azerbaijani cooperation. The Lithuanian leader said our country expected Azerbaijan's support for the joint Baltic candidate for the position of UNESCO Director General, Ms. Ina Marčiulionytė.
