Visiting Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said on Wednesday that his country intended to open an embassy in Syria this year after getting approval from its parliament, the official SANA news agency reported.

Mammadyarov made the remarks after talks with his Syrian counterpart Walid al-Muallem on boosting bilateral relations between the two countries, the report said.

"Both sides agreed to deepen and expand the relations between the two countries," the Azerbaijani top diplomat said, adding that "Minister Muallem has accepted an official invitation to visit Azerbaijan."

During the meeting, Muallem reviewed the latest developments in the region, including the situation in Iraq, the occupied Palestinian territories and Syria's efforts to achieve security and stability in the region, the report said.

For his part, Mammadyarov briefed Muallem the developments in the middle Asian region and the role his country played in keeping security there.

The two sides highlighted the necessity to continue consultations between the two countries in all fields, added the report.
