Ilham Aliyev visited the British Embassy and expressed his condolences on the death of Elizabeth II

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev visited the embassy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in our country on September 13 and expressed his condolences on the death of Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Queen of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

“Report” reports that Fergus Old, the ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to our country, welcomed the head of state.

President Ilham Aliyev wrote his heartfelt words in the mourning book.

Then the head of state talked with the ambassador.

President Ilham Aliyev: It is a very sad event. But no one can change the laws of life. Once again, I want to express my condolences to the British people.

Ambassador: Thank you very much.

President Ilham Aliyev: I knew the Queen personally. I met him twice. For the first time, even before I was elected to the position of President, I was invited to Buckingham Palace in 1997, on the occasion of the Queen’s birthday. At that time, as the vice-president of SOCAR, such an invitation was sent to me. For the first time here, – of course there were many people there – we just got to know each other. After that, I had the opportunity to meet with Her Majesty the Queen during my visit to your country. He was a very kind person.

As you know, recently our delegation gave him a Karabakh horse on my behalf. Although he already had certain health problems, he personally accepted the gift. There is also information about this. He is a very nice person, a great figure and, of course, first of all, a historical figure who is a symbol of Britain. I offer my condolences on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan.

I have also sent a congratulatory letter to the King. I also showed in the letter that I am sure that our relations will continue to develop successfully. Because in many areas we have really reached close relations and I hope that these relations will expand even more in the near future.

Ambassador: Thank you very much. Thank you very much for coming to the embassy on the occasion of the Queen’s death. Also thank you very much for your letters of condolence to King Charles and the Prime Minister. Your attention is very important in the development of relations between our countries.

At the end, a commemorative photo was taken.
