Sanjay Rana, the ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the Republic of India to Azerbaijan: “Nakhchivan possesses rich historical past and culture”.

Sanjay Rana, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of India on March 5-8, paid a visit to Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. In the frame of the visit, the diplomat became acquainted with educational, cultural, healthcare and manufacturing facilities of the autonomous republic and held a number of meetings. On the last day of his visit, the ambassador visited the Historical-Ethnography Museum in Ordubad and saw the kahriz in the “Sarshahar” street of the city. The ambassador who parts with Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic with pleasant impressions has shared these impressions with “Sharg gapisi” (Gate of the East).

- First, we would like to know the purpose of your visit to Nakhchivan.

- The purpose of my visit to Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic was to become closely acquainted with this region and this acquaintance impressed me a lot. During this period we visited educational, cultural, healthcare institutions and museums of the autonomous republic. I have participated in a number of high level meetings and we have exchanged views on the prospects of further development of cooperation in the autonomous republic. These meetings were interesting and there appeared new ideas for relations between India and Azerbaijan as well as Nakhchivan.  I think that these new ideas will play an important role in further cooperation.

- How would you express your impressions of the visit?

As I mentioned, the acquaintance with the autonomous republic made a good impression on me. I witnessed that Nakhchivan has a rich history and culture. Our visit program has been organized well, therefore we were able to visit many places in a short period of time. At the same time, the acquaintance with this land showed once again that there exist similarities of traditions and cultures between our peoples. In fact, I think that we can invite our experts in the field of culture to Nakhchivan.

As you mentioned in the frame of the visit you have held a number of meetings and had the opportunity to exchange views on various fields. How do you think, what are more promising areas of cooperation with Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic?

I think that there are a wide range of opportunities for cooperation in the field of economic sectors. Because agriculture is well developed in Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic and we can establish a good relationship in this field. On the other hand I think we can have projects of water and sanitation as well as irrigation issues. I believe that during my second visit the experts of these fields will be with us. In addition, I believe that we can establish good relations in the fields of culture, tourism and education in the future. 

-Thank you.
