Specialists of the Russian Caspian flotilla will be involved in the search operation for the crashed Azerbaijani MiG-29 fighter jet, head of the press service of the Southern Military District Vadim Astafyev told journalists.

“The search squad will include up to 50 personnel, the small hydrographic vessel Anatoly Guzhvin, the rescue towing vessel SB-45, equipped with the MMK-1-100 multi-purpose bottom-line continuous survey system,” Astafyev said.

He added that it is also planned to use the Falcon remote-controlled underwater vehicle, the Super GNOM Pro underwater remote-controlled inspection complex and the Tiger uninhabited underwater vehicle in the search. “The approximate area of the search area is more than 600 square kilometres, the depth is up to 40 meters.”

The press service of Azerbaijan’s Defence Ministry has confirmed the fact.

On July 24, at about 22.00 during a scheduled training flight conducted at night, communication with the MiG-29 fighter of the Azerbaijan Air Force was suddenly interrupted, and the aircraft disappeared from the radars. According to the preliminary assumptions, as a result of a flight accident, a military aircraft fell into the Caspian Sea.

Urgent steps are being taken to search and rescue the pilot.

The specialists of the relevant bodies of the Republic of Turkey equipped with special equipment and devices who arrived in Baku on July 31 are also involved in the search operations of the military aircraft that crashed during the training flight.

Azerbaijani delegation attends 41st meeting of BSEC Council of Foreign Ministers in Athens

Published

An Azerbaijani delegation led by Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev has attended the 41st meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) in Athens, Greece.

The meeting focused on issues of sectoral cooperation within the organization, activities of working groups, ways to increase effectiveness, as well as organizational issues, cooperation between BSEC and other countries and organizations.

The draft documents on economic cooperation that had been under review by the organization for a long time were also discussed at the meeting. However, due to the non-constructive attitude of the Armenian side and its ignorance of norms of international law, those documents couldn’t be adopted again and therefore aroused discontent among the member countries.

In his remarks, Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev noted that Azerbaijan is interested in productive and project-oriented activity within the organization. He stressed the significance of the activities aimed at producing concrete results.

Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev emphasized that the protracted conflicts impeded the development of cooperation in the region, negatively affecting the cooperation within BSEC, and isolating Armenia, which has occupied Azerbaijan’s territories, from all regional projects.

Azerbaijan's presidency in the organization under the motto “Boosting Trade through Connectivity” lasted from July 1 to December 31, 2018. Development of transport hubs in the BSEC region, improvement of regional cooperation in areas such as tourism, agriculture, and communications was among the key priorities of Azerbaijan’s presidency.
