Baku. 8 January. REPORT.AZ/ "We’re taking this opportunity to note that the U.S. partnership with Azerbaijan is part of the global engagement, Secretary Kerry spoke about, and we look forward to continued cooperation in the year ahead".
Report was told in the press service of the United States Embassy to Azerbaijan, Secretary Kerry delivered remarks on American diplomacy, noting the achievements of the last year, the opportunities and difficulties ahead, and his confidence that America is up to the challenge.
“The United States is today more deeply engaged in more parts of the world on more consequential issues than ever before in history all at one time. And the reason is that our interests demand it and our friends and our allies welcome it and want it. We therefore anticipate additional opportunities and challenges in the months to come in such places as Ukraine, Afghanistan, Central America, Colombia, Cyprus, Libya, South Sudan, Burundi, and the list goes on. We have no illusion about the difficulties, but believe me we are confident, I am personally confident, that because the values we bring to the table are what they are and reflect those of the American people, I believe we have earned strong international support and I believe we will keep it over the course of these challenges.”
