During the meeting, Rahimov and Kipiani discussed issues related to the implementation of existing agreements on cooperation in the fields of youth and sports between the two countries. They agreed that relevant departments of both sides will work together on various events to be held on the Azerbaijani-Georgian border. Rahimov stressed the important role of sports in modern society, notably from the political, social, cultural and economic perspectives.
