"World History has shown that the Republic of Azerbaijan has been a stalwart supporter of peace and economic progress in Europe and Asia. The upcoming meeting between Gen. Tod D. Wolters of the US Air Force and Gen.

"Azerbaijan's participation in major global summits has enabled the country to reveal its natural beauty and a truly special character of its hard-working people that have gone through the last genocide of the 20th century committed by Armenian Armed Forces.
