The September 7th meeting between between General Valery Gerasimov (first deputy minister of defense) with General Petr Pavel (chairman of the NATO Military Committee) is a testimony to Azerbaijan’s tangible contributions to world peace, prosperity and promotion of dialogue among cultures and nations, American expert on international relations Peter Tase said in an interview with Vestnik Kavkaza.
“Baku has earned equal importance as any other European city where major multilateral agreements have taken shape over the last decade,” he stressed.
American expert recalled that on February 16th, 2017, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Valery Gerasimov met face to face for the first time since 2014 in Baku, Azerbaijan. The September 7th meeting between Gerasimov with Petr Pavel was the second major meeting that has placed Baku at the center stage of International politics and has emerged as a balanced city where a series of crucial negotiations and effective dialogue has taken place among the military leadership of Russian Federation (the world’s largest country) and NATO Leadership (the world’s strongest and oldest defense alliance).
