The prime minister cordially greeted Sahiba Gafarova
and congratulated her on the Milli Majlis' admission to the ASEAN
Inter-Parliamentary Assembly as an observer.
The prime minister of Cambodia recalled his visit to
Azerbaijan in 2014, sharing his pleasant memories about the capital
of the country. He noted that he had been to Azerbaijan also in the
1980s, when he had two meetings with National Leader Heydar Aliyev,
who is recognized as an international statesman and who did so much
for the progress of Azerbaijan.
Akka Moha Sena Padei Teko Hun Sen noted that Cambodia
desires the development of relations with Azerbaijan in various
spheres, mentioning the importance of the sides' cooperation in
international organizations including the Non-Aligned Movement. The
prime minister also referred to the successful chairmanship of
Azerbaijan within this organization, noting the significance of the
emergence of its Parliamentary Network at the suggestion of the
president of Azerbaijan.

between the parliaments of two countries has a favorable impact on
interstate relations, making them stronger.
The chair of Milli Majlis (Parliament) informed the
prime minister on the large-scale projects and initiatives
implemented by Azerbaijan aiming to achieve solutions to global
matters as well as on the work done since the start of the
Azerbaijani presidency in the Non-Aligned Movement and on NAM
Parliamentary Network which was established at the initiative of
the head of Azerbaijani state in 2021.
Moreover, Sahiba Gafarova told about the historic
victory of Azerbaijan in the second Karabakh war, the Azerbaijani
lands' liberation from thirty decades of occupations, and the
endeavors of Azerbaijan to keep up peace and stability in the
region. Although it has been two years since the end of the war,
Armenia still avoids its obligations and prevents ensuring regional
peace. During the thirty years of occupation, Armenia destroyed all
the Azerbaijani towns and provinces, their infrastructure, and
cultural as well as historical monuments.
Azerbaijan is conducting large-scale restoration work
on its liberated lands, making them alive again, the speaker of the
parliament said. She added that the multitude of mines planted by
Armenia seriously hinders this activity of Azerbaijan. About 270
people were affected by the mine explosions in the two years since
the war's end.
At the end of the meeting, Chair of Milli Majlis
Sahiba Gafarova presented the Cambodian prime minister with the
book 'Karabakh: Before and After the Occupation.'
