The Republic of Azerbaijan is a presidential republic situated in the South-Caucasus region, at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Azerbaijan has an ancient and historical cultural heritage particularly in the areas of literature, music, architecture and visual arts. Following its restoration of independence from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in October, 1991, Azerbaijan has undergone an active process of development in various sectors of the economy and particularly in the energy sector. It is the aim of the Consulate to offer general information on Azerbaijan with a view of facilitating the ever-increasing contacts between the two countries and to extend its services to Maltese and Azeri nationals visiting the respective countries.
The Honorary Consulate of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Malta was established in June, 2014.
