Novruz Mammadov became the new Prime Minister of Azerbaijan. His candidacy was approved at today's meeting of the parliament.
Previously, Novruz Mammadov served as an assistant to the head of state on foreign policy issues. Speaking at the parliament, the Prime Minister thanked those present for the confidence in him, noting that the Republic of Azerbaijan, thanks to the successful policy of President Ilham Aliyev, in recent years has made great strides in foreign and domestic policy. Particularly Novruz Mammadov stressed that over the next three years Azerbaijan will chair the Non-Aligned Movement, and this, in his opinion, will also become a very important page in the history of the state.
“Being an independent, sovereign state, today Azerbaijan is experiencing its best period. I am proud that I live in this period. I promise to you - the deputies - and, above all, the president of the country, that I will do my best to fulfill all tasks set before me,” Novruz Mammadov said.
