The website of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs highlighted high-level exchanges between the leaders of the two states in recent years, Jewish charities and socio-cultural organizations in the country, as well as bilateral agreements in various fields.

In early October, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz paid an official visit to Azerbaijan to discuss diplomatic and security issues. ■
