    Russia-Azerbaijan relations and deals

    Post  AttilaA on Mon Oct 29, 2012 6:30 pm

    Russian-Azerbaijani cooperation based on principles of strategic partnership exists in various fields. One of them (and actually one of the most important) is in the sphere of defense and military technology. Defense is a very sensitive topic in the Caucasus due to territorial conflicts between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Nonetheless, Russian-Azerbaijani cooperation in the sphere of defense is developing and now plays an important role in bilateral relations.

    In 2011, according to data provided by the Center for World Arms Trade Analysis, Azerbaijan was the fifth-largest buyer of Russian arms. According to Russian services, Azerbaijan is ready to spend 1 billion dollars per year on buying Russian weapons.

    Azerbaijan bought 2 batteries if Im not mistaken. Any plans to buy more or that is it?

    96L6 is now regularly sold one with each battery so there must be one more 96L6 lurking around Very Happy

    for Russia it will be very difficult task. Azerbaijan is influenced by the USA and Turkey. And how to minimalise echoes of the conflict between Azerbaijan and the Russia's ally - Armenia? Only a very good business may make this visit fruitful

    Azerbaijan buying BTR-82, according to Aliev.
    Also mentioned Azeri military personnel training in Russian institutes.

    This is all good and natural. Now its time to boost non-military ties as well.
    I'd much rather Russia work on good relations with Azerbaijan than mooches like Belorus and quasi-Russophobes like Ukraine.

    Problem with Azerbaijan is that it's an oil-oligarchy whose dictatorship is legitimized by nationalism. That's the way it is because of the situation in Nagorny-Karabakh and while it's so, conflict can erupt at any time.

    I'm not saying Russia is not an oligarchy or that Armenia doesn't suffer from the same ultra-nationalism - but it's worrying because Azerbaijan is buying up weapons like mad and pumping a large amount of its oil profits into expanding the military. Conceivably it could even end up in a war with Iran sooner or later.

    With that in mind though I'm all for building relations in all fields, at least it's not an anti-Russian country in any description. It manages to build its relations with many countries and defend its interests without any stupid complexes.

    Russian, Azerbaijani defense ministers sign plan on cooperation for 2015

    Putin: Russia-Azerbaijan trade grows, relations develop in all areas
    BAKU, October 13. /TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu and his Azerbaijani counterpart Zakir Gasanov signed a plan on cooperation for 2015 on Monday.

    “At present, we’re carrying out a program of developing cooperation between the Russian Federation and the Azerbaijan Republic in the military and military-technical fields for 2013-2016,” Shoigu said.

    During the talks, the ministers discussed prospects for expanding cooperation in training personnel.

    “At present, fifty-seven Azerbaijani servicemen are studying at the Russian Defense Ministry’s schools on a non-repayable basis,” Shoigu said.

    “Education and training of personnel is a very serious moment due to the supplies of military hardware for the Azerbaijani army within military-technical cooperation,” he said.

    “We received an application to train additional specialists for the Azerbaijani army. This application has been accepted,” Shoigu said.

    The cooperation plan includes many aspects further work for 2015.

    “Cooperation in the Caspian Sea between the navies of our countries is a very important aspect. We strictly comply with the decisions of the leaders of our countries, our presidents at their meetings in Astrakhan and Minsk. Much should be done,” Shoigu said.

    “We cannot sidestep the problems connected to security and stability in this region and in trouble spots - Iraq and Syria. We also touched on Ukraine,” he said.

    Russia interested in further cooperation with Azerbaijan businesses - Putin

    BAKU, June 13. /TASS/. Russia is interested in further expanding of cooperation with Azerbaijan’s businesses, including in the food market, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday.

    "I share your opinion about the level and character of relations between our states," he said during a meeting with Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev. "I would like to stress that despite the turbulence in the economy, the trade turnover between our countries has been growing."

    In 2014, the Russian president said, the trade turnover between Russia and Azerbaijan grew by over 12%, and in the first quarter of the current year the growth was almost by 6%.

    "This demonstrates the businesses from Azerbaijan have been taking advantage of the situations in our markets, including in the food market. And I would like to stress, we are happy about it," Putin said.

    "Furthermore, if this cooperation expands, it would be even better, we are interested in it," Putin added.

    Moscow and Baku are applying every effort to diversify bilateral relations, the Russian president said.

    At the beginning of the meeting, the Russian president congratulated his Azerbaijani counterpart with opening in Baku of the first European Games. The opening ceremony, Putin said, was an "impressive show, talented and spectacular."

    Azerbaijan-Russia cooperation offers optimism about future - Azerbaijani president

    Cooperation between Azerbaijan and Russia is at a high level and offers optimism about future, Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said on Saturday.

    "The relations between our countries have been developing very positively, dynamically, and every year we are putting higher the objectives we have," he said during a meeting with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

    He said the two leaders had been meeting regularly, and active dialogues continue also between sector ministries. Parliamentary contacts have been developing, too.

    "Despite the problems in the global economy, we still are building up the potential of mutual cooperation in the economic sphere," Aliyev said.

    And humanitarian cooperation, he added, has always been at the show level.

    "The level of cooperation between our countries allows us cooperate closely, build up cooperation and be optimistic about future," he said.

    Azerbaijan’s president thanked Putin for the visit.

    The First European Games are held in Baku on June 12 to 28, with athletes competing for 253 sets of medals in 20 sports. Competitions in 11 sports - archery, athletics, boxing, beach volleyball, wrestling, cycling, shooting, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo and triathlon - will enjoy the status of qualifies ahead of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

    Azerbaijan withdraws two Consuls General from Russia

    Obviously the situation is beneficial to both Turdkeystan and US, I only wish Russia is more powerful than it is now so they can just annex Azerbaijan and expel all Pro Turko and American terrorists who would resist to the Caspian sea!

    Not quite as Azerbaijan had praised Russia recently regarding the negotiations.  The reasons are hushed up as stated in the article.  So the question is, consular generals from these two cities?  Strange really, but nothing to fret about just yet.

    As well........Pravdareport? Odd name and odd that it is an english speaking site.
