    Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev, who will visit Moscow today.

    On April 19, the Kremlin press service announced a meeting between the two leaders in the Russian capital. The talks' agenda covers the key matters dealing with further developing the Russia-Azerbaijan strategic partnership and allied relations, as well as a detailed exchange of views on the recent developments in the region.

    In addition, the presidents will meet with veterans of the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM), the construction of which was oversaw by Heydar Aliyev as the first deputy chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers.
