Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State (1997-2001)


The Azerbaijani President Heydar Aliyev is a political figure with a clear and firm position. He is famous personality, who attaches great importance to bilateral cooperation in developing the Caspian energy resources and working for improvement of the USA-Azerbaijani relations.

I am pleased with President Bill Clinton`s meeting with President Heydar Aliyev. During my tenure I didn`t see any other president, who was welcomed in the United States as Heydar Aliyev was.
