Statement by Minister of Foreign Affairs on 30th anniversary of Canada-Azerbaijan diplomatic relations


August 10, 2022 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

“Today marks the 30th anniversary of our diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan, a relationship built upon warm people-to-people ties, including a vibrant Azerbaijani community, which forms an essential part of Canada’s diversity, prosperity and success.

“For three decades, our countries have developed a strong working relationship on the international scene to further common values. We are both helping to provide humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and have worked together in Afghanistan and – a testament to our mutual commitment to help those in need. In fora such as the United Nations and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, we have collaborated in the promotion of women’s empowerment and environmental stewardship globally, as well as in strengthening the rules-based international order and democracy in the Caucasus region.

“As we mark this important day, we reiterate our commitment to continue strengthening ties with Azerbaijan. We look forward to forging deeper links by building on this important friendship in the years to come.”
