hed the hearts of the Azerbaijani people, as the rest
oration of the ancient Silk Road i s for the benefit of the entire world, and the develo
pment and prosperity of all countries,” Hajiyev said. “The Belt and Road Initiative is not imposing anything on anyon
e, it just provides a framework for mutually b
eneficial cooperation,” he added. The fundam ental features of the Belt and Road Initiative are that every country knows how to de

According to Hajiyev, Azerbaijan fully supports the initiative, and
is building new bridges of cooperation and frien
dship. “We are looking forward to the second Belt and Road Forum for International Co
operation at the end of this month, and Azerbaijan will actively participate in this high-level event,” he said.
