Azerbaijani-Greek relations are foreign relations between Azerbaijan and Greece. Greece recognized Azerbaijan's independence on December 31, 1991. Both countries established diplomatic relations in 1992. The Greek embassy in Baku was opened in the spring of 1993. The embassy of Azerbaijan in Athens was opened in August 2004.


Political and commercial relations

The nations of Azerbaijan and Greece each maintain bi-lateral, diplomatic relations. Each state maintains a full embassy, Azerbaijan in Athens and Greece in Baku. Recently in February of 2009, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev visited Greece in order to boost bilateral relations.[1] The leader met with Greek President Karolos Papoulias, as well as the Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.[1] At the meeting between the officials, the two nations agreed that they must work more closely to get Azeri gas into Greece to help ease recent security issues.[2][3]

In the past the two nations have made many deals related to the oil industry. In 2007 Greek Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas signed a "memorandum of cooperation" in the sectors of natural gas and oil while in Baku.[4][5] Sioufas referred to this memorandum as a "new page in economic and energy relations of the two countries."[5]
