The head of state noted that, following the restoration of Azerbaijan's territorial integrity and sovereignty, historic opportunities for peace have emerged in the region.

The head of state noted that there are currently very good and favorable opportunities to advance the peace agenda and mentioned that positive agreements have been reached as part of the bilateral process towards the delimitation and demarcation of borders.

President Ilham Aliyev pointed out that Azerbaijan has resolved this conflict. “Thus, the conflict in international relations has been resolved. However, despite this, it is regrettable that new conflict zones are emerging in the world.”

The Speaker of the Latvian Saeima expressed her satisfaction with the opportunity to visit Karabakh, noting that they had visited Shusha and other parts of the region.

She highlighted the deeper cultural ties between the Latvian and Azerbaijani peoples, which extend beyond the 30 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries. In this context, she fondly recalled that over 100 years ago, Latvian artist Jūlijs Straume lived and worked as a teacher in Shusha, where he created a collection of Azerbaijani carpets.

Daiga Mieriņa also extended her congratulations on Azerbaijan hosting COP29.
