Tajik, Azerbaijani Leaders Pledge Support For Territorial Integrity

Tajik President Emomali Rahmon and visiting Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev have signed a declaration in Dushanbe supporting joint and individual efforts to counter threats to their countries' sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The declaration signed on October 16 stressed the "inadmissibility of changing internationally recognized borders."

The document also recognized "an urgent necessity to peacefully settle the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh," a territory Azerbaijan claims as its own but which is currently occupied by pro-Armenian forces.

In addition, the two presidents expressed their readiness to continue to develop mutual economic, trade, transportation, and military cooperation.

Aliyev arrived to Dushanbe late on October 15 on a three-day official visit to Tajikistan.
