ADDRESS BY MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE REPUBLIC OF AZERBAIJAN, H.E. ELMAR MAMMADYAROV, AT NATO RESOLUTE SUPPORT MISSION MEETING IN ANTALYA (13 may 2015)

“Dear Mr. Secretary General, Dear Minister Chavushoglu and Minister Rabbani, Colleagues and friends,

I think I will speak everybody’s mind thanking our fabulous Turkish hosts for hospitality in the marvellous Antalya and I extend our appreciation to the Turkish government and my friend Minister Chavushoglu. For me it is a double pleasure to be here, since I am in brotherly Turkey and our troops at the Resolute Support Mission (RSM) also serve together with the Turkish contingent.

Azerbaijan contributes significantly to the RSM by providing troops, multimodal transit, training and financial assistance. Azerbaijan has already made one million Euros donations to the Afghanistan National Army (ANA) Trust Fund in 2012, and will further donate 2 million Euros to ANA Trust Fund by the end of 2017. But experience of the last decade demonstrated that military assistance alone is not enough for establishing sustainable peace in Afghanistan. Therefore, my country’s contribution to the stability of Afghanistan goes well beyond of our involvement in NATO operations. We support Afghanistan on its path towards self-reliance by enhancing practical contributions in the areas of education and training, infrastructure development, investments, and financial aid.

ADA University in Azerbaijan holds annual governance trainings for Afghan officials in addition to NATO trainings at its facilities, our Mine Agency provides mine-awareness projects, Ministry of Emergency is about to sign a memorandum to allow Afghan nationals to have a full 4-year education at its Academy, and we are building a school in Afghanistan. My government covers all expenses.

We also need to help Afghan government in its vast reform agenda. Transport infrastructure is a very important part of it. We should link Afghanistan and Europe in the shortest way possible. New Alat Sea Port on the Caspian shore of Azerbaijan and Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, linking Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan, will bring its added-values in this regard and beyond, restoring the ancient Silk Road.

Last, but not least, future of Afghanistan will also very much depend on the neighbors and we should all help to make Afghanistan story a successful one. Thank You.”

Global threats such as terrorism, trafficking, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and cyber-attacks require a cooperative approach. Emerging risks to energy security are of concern to NATO and Azerbaijan alike.

NATO Secretary General welcomes strengthened partnership with Georgia

Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg welcomed Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili to NATO Headquarters on Monday (11 May 2015) for talks on deepening the partnership between the Alliance and Tbilisi. Calling Georgia “a strong partner”, the Secretary General underscored that the country is “an important contributor to our shared security”. Mr. Stoltenberg thanked the President for Georgia’s “remarkable role” in NATO-led operations over many years, noting that Georgia is currently the second-largest contributor to the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan. Due to Georgia’s significant operational contributions, Allied leaders designated the country an “Enhanced Opportunity” partner at last year’s Wales Summit, and also established a “Substantial NATO-Georgia Package” to strengthen Georgia’s defence capabilities. The Secretary General noted that NATO trainers will support Georgian defence reform, and that later in 2015, a NATO-Georgia Training and Evaluation Centre will be established in Georgia. “The Centre will improve our troops’ ability to work together,” Mr Stoltenberg said.

President Margvelashvili and the Secretary General also discussed Georgia’s efforts to make its defence sector more transparent and accountable. Mr. Stoltenberg welcomed the “significant progress” made thus far, and encouraged Georgia to further deepen democratic reforms, including on judicial independence and the rule of law.

“Georgia is moving closer to NATO,” the Secretary General said; “we are looking forward to continue working with you on this path.”

NATO Secretary General announces dates for 2016 Warsaw Summit

“I am happy to announce that the next NATO Summit will take place on 8-9 July, 2016 in Warsaw, Poland.

This Summit comes at a crucial time for the Alliance, as the tectonic plates of Euro-Atlantic security have shifted both in the East and the South. We are already implementing the biggest reinforcement of our collective defence since the end of the Cold War. In Warsaw, we will chart the course for the Alliance’s adaptation to the new security environment, so that NATO remains ready to defend all Allies against any threat from any direction.

We will build on our valuable work with partner nations and organisations to keep our neighbourhood stable. We will stress our long-term commitment to Afghanistan through the Enduring Partnership. And we will further strengthen the bond between Europe and North America on which our Alliance is founded. Poland has been a staunch Ally since it joined in 1999, as part of the historic enlargement that helped heal the division across Europe. Poland is committed to strong defence and makes a vital contribution to Allied solidarity. I warmly welcome Poland’s offer to host our meeting and I look forward to a very successful Summit in July 2016.”
