Bilateral relations

Political Relations

Following the recognition of the independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan by Romania (being the second country to recognize Azerbaijan), the two countries have developed an excellent political-diplomatic relationship, reaching the level of strategic partnership, which is characterized by a substantial political dialogue and a bilateral cooperation in energy field. In the 20 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties, Romanian-Azerbaijani relations have witnessed a remarkable evolution, always ascending. In recent years, there have been several high-level bilateral contacts (visits of presidents, foreign ministers and at parliamentary level) that boosted bilateral relations.
The establishment of a strategic partnership between Romania and the Republic of Azerbaijan, focusing on energy, was first addressed during the official visit to the Republic of Azerbaijan of the President of Romania, H.E. Traian Basescu (11-12 October 2006).
A first step towards the implementation of this goal was the signing, on 12 March 2008, of the "Agreement of Cooperation between the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Romania and the Ministry of Industry and Energy of the Republic of Azerbaijan".
A further step in this regards was "The Declaration on establishing a strategic partnership between Romania and Azerbaijan", which was signed during the official visit of President Ilham Aliyev in Romania (28-30 September 2009). The document aims to:
- strengthening political dialogue,
- energy cooperation, economic cooperation and on investments,
- cooperation on security issues,
- cooperation within the international organizations, as well as on cultural field.
By establishing the strategic partnership, the Parties have agreed to deepen cooperation in all areas envisaged by the Declaration: political, economic, energy, security, cultural, scientific, and at multilateral level. Sectoral Action Plans are to be developed for cooperation within the international organizations.
In the period that has passed from the adoption of the Declaration on the establishment of strategic partnership and the signing the Joint Action Plan (April 2011), the Parties have created a practical mechanism for cooperation and consultation in all areas outlined in the Declaration.
