President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev: Ilham Heydarovich,
I am happy to see you here in St Petersburg.
We have plenty of subjects to discuss and many interesting projects. We have achieved a number of improved results, including concerning the structure of our bilateral trade. These are perhaps formal things, but they are nonetheless important for our bilateral relations.
We have but a brief meeting today but I hope that we will soon meet again. I will visit you in Baku at the beginning of July and we will discuss all of our bilateral contacts in detail.
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev: Thank you, Dmitry Anatolyevich,
I am very happy to see you and happy that you have accepted our invitation to make an official visit to Azerbaijan.
In this, the first year of your presidency, this is a very important indicator of the level of our bilateral relations. I hope that our relations will continue to develop as well as they have been. We will be working actively in many different areas.
Our relations are showing very dynamic and positive growth. They are distinguished by a spirit of partnership and a wide-ranging agenda and range of contacts.
I am very pleased that we are making such rapid progress, working actively together in the region and taking such great strides forward in our bilateral relations. This is all very good to see and we will continue in this direction.
