According to him, Azerbaijani state and people are also interested in eliminating these unpleasant situations and make Muslim countries live in peace and stability: “Azerbaijan supports the East Jerusalem as capital of Palestine stands for the solution of the problem between the two states. Our country gives great contributions to the Islamic solidarity. The announcement of the last 2017 year as the "Year of Islamic Solidarity" in Azerbaijan is a clear proof of this.

The gate of peace, the key to peace is Jerusalem, and we must put this problem in unity and solidarity”.
He also touched upon the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: "This problem is one of the major conflicts in the Muslim world, which is still waiting for the solution.

The Azerbaijani lands belong to people and urge the Muslim geography to unite for solving the Nagorno-Karabakh problem”.
