Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov is optimistic about the normalization of relations between his country and Armenia. He shared his sentiments at a joint news conference with the Pakistani FM, in Islamabad.

And the reason for these positive sentiments is the recent transfer of some territories of Tavush Province by Armenia to Azerbaijan.

The Azerbaijani FM said that at today's meeting he presented the post-conflict situation in the region to his Pakistani counterpart.

According to him, he also informed the Pakistani FM about "Azerbaijan’s rehabilitation and reconstruction works in the liberated territories."
