During Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev’s recent visit to Kiev and his negotiations with Ukraine’s president Viktor Yanukovich, journalists noted that neither of the presidents once mentioned GUAM at their joint press conference on October 28. Pikret Sadikhov, an independent political analyst from Azerbaijan thinks this was not surprising. When the organisation was set up the situation in the former Soviet Union countries was different. The importance of the organisation has now decreased therefore it has lost its significance.
