The presidents of Azerbaijan and Serbia, Ilham Aliyev and Aleksandar Vucic, signed seven separate bilateral agreements and discussed energy co-operation, following discussions in Belgrade on Wednesday.

The deals signed also include a Memorandum of Understanding on establishing a Strategic Partnership Council.

Aliyev, who was on an official visit to the Serbian capital, his first since 2011, agreed that his country was willing to do deals on energy and other sectors with 'friendly states'.

"Azerbaijan has rich natural resources of gas, which play an important role in energetic stability of many countries and our role will be growing as we continue to cooperate with friendly states, not just in energy field but in other fields too," he stated.

Vucic has previously discussed connecting his country to the Trans-Adriatic and Trans- Anatolian pipelines. He will visit Azerbaijan later this year.
