Clinton"caresses" the leader of Azerbaijan rich in oil

Sincere reception of Aliyev by Clinton is evidence that the Clinton administration has adopted strategic resolutions to take part in the economy of the Central Asia and the Caucasus region.

At the meeting yesterday, Clinton repeated once more that he supports the abolition of the ban to render financial aid to Azerbaijan adopted by the Congress.
