Description of Selected News: "Azerbaijan keen on developing ties with Iran

BAKU (IRNA) -- Azeri President Ilham Aliyev stressed expansion of bilateral ties with Iran in all fields.

In a meeting with Iran's Ambassador to Azerbaijan Ahad Qazaei at the end of the latter's tenure here, Aliyev expressed appreciation over Qazaei's role in holding meetings between the two countries' presidents.

It is quite clear that Iran's ambassador played a role in balancing mutual relations in a sensitive situation, the president said.

Qazaei, for his part, reiterated the meetings held between the two countries' presidents led to an acceptable level of bilateral ties and cooperation.

He hoped that Tehran-Baku ties would reach an appropriate level during newly appointed Ambassador Afshar Soleymani's tenure due to his interest in promoting ties as well as Aliyev's wise policies.

Meanwhile, the Azerbaijan International University awarded Qazaei with an honorary doctorate for his efforts in bolstering scientific and cultural ties between the two countries' universities."
