William Lahue: Azerbaijan-NATO relations to strengthen further

"Azerbaijan-NATO relations are strong and we hope that the relations will strengthen further", NATO/PfP Liaison Officer in South Caucasus William Lahue told journalists.

Lahue highly appreciated Azerbaijan’s contribution to the peacekeeping operations in Afghanistan and said Azerbaijan’s membership to Non-Aligned Movement didn’t contradict its partnership with NATO. "Deepening of this partnership in the future depends on the government of Azerbaijan because this issue is determined by the country".

Commenting on NATO Chicago Summit’s final declaration, William Lahue said that NATO member countries supported the peaceful settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. "NATO was not involved in the negotiation process, this is not a NATO’s role, but the alliance supports the peace process and expresses its political support of the settlement of the conflict".
