Azerbaijan could participate in large joint cultural and scientific projects of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Report informs, Special Representative of Russian President for International Cultural Cooperation Mikhail Shvydkoy said to journalists in St. Petersburg.

"The Eurasian Economic Union is a convenient platform for creating large joint projects, including with countries that are not part of the union, for example, with Azerbaijan. Moreover, now in Azerbaijan they cooperate in various directions - culture, science, education”, - M. Shvydkoy said.
