The head of state said that new transport and logistical opportunities had been created in the region along the Middle Corridor, noted that Azerbaijan's partnership with countries of Central Asia had expanded further, and spoke about the new cooperation opportunities in this area.

James O'Brien, in turn, said that the relations between the United States and Azerbaijan had deep roots and that the two countries were good partners. He touched upon the role the United States played in delivering Azerbaijan's energy resources to world markets, said that his country supported the peace agenda in the region, the normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan and the negotiations on a peace treaty, and pointed out that the United States was ready to continue the negotiations in this regard in Washington.

James O'Brien emphasized that the US supported the development of the Trans-Caspian transport corridor concept, as well as the continuation of discussions on the opening of communications between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
