The presidents of Israel and Azerbaijan met this weekend in Germany, reaffirming bilateral ties between the two countries even as the war against Hamas rages in Gaza.

The diplomatic meet on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference between Isaac Herzog and Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev highlighted the strength of the enduring relations between the Jewish state and the predominantly Shiite Muslim country.

The two leaders “exchanged views on cooperation between Azerbaijan and Israel across various areas, and touched upon economic, trade cultural and humanitarian ties,” Azerbaijani Ambassador to Israel Mukhtar Mammadov wrote in a post on X.

At the same time, Azerbaijan is a leading purchaser of Israeli military hardware, which helped lift Baku to victory in its 2020 war with its archrival Armenia.
