Award for Azerbaijani Prime Minister
The President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has honoured Azerbaijan’s Prime Minister, Artur Tahir oglu Rasizadeh, with the Order of Friendship of Peoples
“Awards such as these are often accused of having political subtext but there is no hint of that in your case. You have done a great deal for diplomatic relations between our countries, probably more than any other citizen of Azerbaijan,” said the President.
Mr. Lukashenko reminded the audience that he has enjoyed friendly relations with the leader of Azerbaijan. “There are few other heads of state that I have had such relations with,” noted the President. Artur Tahir oglu Rasizadeh has made a considerable contribution to achieving this level of mutual understanding between the two countries.
The Belarusian President expressed his conviction that the Prime Minister of Azerbaijan will appreciate the prestigious award and will always be proud of it.
Artur Tahir oglu Rasizadeh was awarded the Order of Friendship of Peoples in recognition of his considerable personal contribution to the development and strengthening of economic, trade and humanitarian ties between Belarus and Azerbaijan.
