Director of the Political Department of the Chinese Embassy to Azerbaijan Chen Xinyin has hailed the relations between the two countries. “Chinese-Azerbaijani ties are developing on all fronts,” he told “Ensuring security of the Great Silk Road” seminar, which was organized by the Confucius Institute at Azerbaijan University of Languages (AUL). He also provided an insight into China’s role in global military, political and geo-economic processes.

Over hundred Azerbaijani servicemen have attended different courses in China since 2004.”

He stressed the necessity of expanding relations between the two countries within international and regional organizations. Emphasizing the geo-strategic role of Azerbaijan in the restoration of Silk Road, Abbasov pointed to the importance of ensuring security of the Eurasian transport corridors.
