President Ilham Aliyev’s attendance in the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit is of vital importance for Azerbaijan, Ariel Cohen, founder of International Market Analysis Ltd, director of the Center for Energy, Natural Resources, and Geopolitics, senior fellow at the Institute for Analysis of Global Security, told Trend March 30.

“Over 50 heads of state will attend the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington this week, to discuss the reduction of the nuclear terrorism threat,” Cohen said.

Cohen said that a leading nation in the South Caucasus, Azerbaijan is a strategically vital partner to the U.S. on combatting terrorism, secularism, nuclear and conventional security, energy and foreign policy.

“To further a stronger partnership, the U.S. should become more active in ensuring Azerbaijan’s regional security - notably with regards to the Armenia and the resolution of the Karabakh problem, as well as possible threats from religious extremists, Russia and Iran,” Cohen said.

The Nuclear Security Summit will be held in Washington on March 31 – April 1.
