"Planes delivering humanitarian aid to Afghanistan and equipment for the anti-terrorist operation have repeatedly used our air corridor and will continue using it," the official said.

Azerbaijan`s President Geidar Aliyev said at a special ceremony marking the country`s 10th independence anniversary several days ago that "in the struggle against international terrorism Azerbaijan acted in alliance with the United States". "Azerbaijan will make its contribution to the struggle against terrorism," Aliyev said.
