UK ambassador presents credentials to Azerbaijani FM

Newly appointed ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Carole Crofts has presented a copy of her credentials to Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov.

The British ambassador said she would spare no efforts to contribute to the expansion of relations between the two countries.

They hailed development of the bilateral ties between Azerbaijan and UK, and highlighted the importance of energy cooperation.

They also praised the long-term and trusted partnership between Azerbaijan and BP.

The sides also noted the key role of the joint intergovernmental commission and high-level reciprocal visits in developing relations between the two countries.

Mammadyarov provided an insight into the negotiations to solve the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict.

The FM said the escalation of tension on the frontline as a result of Armenia’s provocation in early April reaffirmed unacceptability and unsustainability of status-quo.
