By Ulviyya Zulfikar
Today, Azerbaijan maintains fruitful cooperation with a number of influential international organizations. Azerbaijan, recognized as a reliable partner on a global scale, enjoys a high reputation in organizations that unite dozens of countries.
Azerbaijan is a member of regional and international organizations such as the United Nations (UN), the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the Council of Europe, Commonwealth of Independent Countries United States (CIS), GUAM – Organization for Democracy and Economic Development, etc.
Guided by the norms and principles of international law, including the principle of respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, Azerbaijan is also recognized as a country renowned in international organizations for its contributions to world peace.
Azerbaijan has also hosted forums and conferences of many international organizations.
Azerbaijan, which has chaired the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) since 2019, has made great progress within the organization.
Thanks to its multilateral cooperation within the UN, Azerbaijan managed to strengthen its global position in a very short time. The UN has adopted four resolutions on Armenia’s 30-year occupation of Azerbaijani territories. Azerbaijan also continues to successfully cooperate with UNESCO, UNICEF and other United Nations agencies.
The Partnership and Cooperation Agreement signed between the European Union and Azerbaijan reflects the issue of mutual cooperation. Azerbaijan continues to play an important role in ensuring Europe’s energy security. The implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) project is of paramount importance in terms of the diversification of gas supplies to Europe. 3,500 km long, the SGC will redraw the energy map of the region by transporting gas from the Caspian to European markets.
Azerbaijan’s relations with the Council of Europe are also based on mutually beneficial cooperation. During its accession, Azerbaijan participated in the preparation and adoption of documents covering a number of important areas of the organization.
International organizations are also willing to deepen cooperation with Azerbaijan as an important player. Today, Azerbaijan successfully cooperates not only with Western institutions but also with all regional and global organizations.
