President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has received a Russian delegation, who are visiting the country on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Russian Book House in Baku.

As informs the press-service of the Azerbaijani head of state, welcoming the guests, President Ilham Aliyev said:

'Good to see you again.'

Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Leonid Kalashnikov said: 'We come here as if it were our home.'

Ilham Aliyev: 'That's right. That's how it should be. I am very glad to see you. At a very significant time you visit us. My visit to Russia has just ended and the CIS summit is about to begin.'

Leonid Kalashnikov: 'Your visit, Ilham Heydarovich, had a very big effect in Russia. Frankly, there was a very warm meeting. All of this has been shown.'

Ilham Aliyev: 'It's no secret that with Vladimir Vladimirovich I actually developed very trusting, I would say, friendly relations based on mutual respect, mutual understanding and the desire to deepen cooperation. For me, of course, it was a great honour to be invited to the Valdai Forum. The forum itself is important and then it is important who invited. Vladimir Vladimirovich invited me during our meeting in Beijing in April. Then we had very constructive negotiations, and now in Sochi, as it were, summed up the results. Everything that we agree on, everything is done. Of course, the meeting with the president was very informative, very warm. I am very happy about it.'
