Afghan President: we grateful for Azerbaijan's support

Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, speaking at the Heart of Asia – Istanbul Process 7th Ministerial Conference in Baku, express gratitude to Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev for his support.

"We highly appreciates the work carried out under the leadership of the Azerbaijani president for the opening of the North-South Corridor.

"Azerbaijan servicemen contribute to our security," Ashraf Ghani said. "We welcome the Azerbaijani president’s statement on strengthening support in the field of defense," he stressed.
