"Firstly, it was noted in the letter that Azerbaijan contributes to international security. Since 2001, The term "security" is the most important factor in Washington's relations with foreign countries. Taking into account "international security", the United States has blacklisted some states, may accuse in support of terrorism, and as well as does not support the steps taken by the United States for international security. Today, the United States is grateful to Azerbaijan for its contribution to international security, which gives important dividends to the regional status of our country. It does not value for Armenia, which is the other side of the Karabakh conflict, giving value to Azerbaijan's role in international security and anti-terror operations, is an indication of Washington's emphasis on the South Caucasus.
Secondly, Trump said to Ilham Aliyev that "I appreciate your leadership in strengthening the energy security of Europe by introducing the Southern Gas Corridor initiative". It means that Trump supports Aliyev's foreign policy, the president's position in the energy projects between the Caspian basin and Europe. This means that Ilham Aliyev plays a leadership role in European energy security and diversification of energy resources.

Undoubtedly, this is a great political success of the President of Azerbaijan. Apart from the dangerous processes taking place in the region and in the world, it is inevitable that the rational foreign and internal policy carried out by Ilham Aliyev will protect Azerbaijan from the potential dangers in the future. While analyzing the current political situation and the situation in surrounding countries, we can say with certainty that our country is in safe hands. "
