According to the British Embassy, Johnson thanked the Forum for paying attention to “Russia’s illegal occupation of Ukraine”, and expressed support for Azerbaijan’s efforts towards renewable energy sources and its role in energy security. In addition, Johnson noted the contribution of Azerbaijan to operations in Afghanistan.
The British prime minister also noted the danger of mines in carrying out restoration work in the territories liberated from occupation, and stressed the joint work of British specialists, together with their Azerbaijani counterparts, is working to eliminate these threats.
