Description
 
Azerbaijan is an important power in the South Caucasus by reason of its geographic location and ample energy resources, but it faces challenges to its stability. U.S. assistance for Azerbaijan aims to develop democratic institutions and civil society, support the growth of the non-oil sectors of the economy, strengthen the interoperability of the armed forces with NATO, increase maritime border security, and bolster the countryńˇ╗s ability to combat terrorism, corruption, narcotics trafficking, and other transnational crime. Cumulative U.S. aid budgeted for Azerbaijan from FY1992 through FY2009 was $909 million. After the terrorist attacks on the U.S. on September 11, 2001, Azerbaijan granted over-flight rights and approved numerous landings and refueling operations at Bakuńˇ╗s civilian airport in support of U.S. and coalition military operations in Afghanistan. More recently, the country is a major land, air, and sea conduit of the Northern Distribution Network for supplies in support of U.S. and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) operations in Afghanistan. Contents of this report: Political Background; Economic Conditions; Foreign Policy and Defense; U.S. Relations; Contributions to Counter-Terrorism. Map. This is a print on demand report.
