Azer News - - Front Page - By Narmina Mam­madova

Azer­bai­jani Pres­i­dent, Supreme Com­man­der-inChief of the Armed Forces Il­ham Aliyev has viewed a newly built "Tu­fan" type bor­der guard ship, and mil­i­tary hard­ware, weapons and am­mu­ni­tion at the Ship­yard and Re­pair Cen­ter of the Coast Guard of the State Bor­der Ser­vice.

Chair­man of the State Bor­der Ser­vice, Colonel-Gen­eral Elchin Guliyev in­formed the head of state of the work done. Pres­i­dent Aliyev got fa­mil­iar with the project of the Savalan type sta­teof-the-art bor­der guard ship, as well as new high speed craft, and tow­ing ves­sels built as part of the Milli Boat pro­gram.

The Pres­i­dent then viewed the State Bor­der Ser­vice's new spe­cial mil­i­tary hard­ware, weapons and am­mu­ni­tion.

Then Pres­i­dent Aliyev was pre­sented new spe­cial-pur­pose com­bat ve­hi­cles and am­mu­ni­tion, un­manned ae­rial ve­hi­cles, anti-tank mis­siles, laser tar­geted di­al­ing sys­tems and ther­mal ob­ser­va­tion de­vices. These weapons and am­mu­ni­tion are the prod­ucts of the world's lead­ing coun­tries.

The for­ma­tion and de­vel­op­ment of the com­bat ac­tiv­ity of the Azer­bai­jan Bor­der Ser­vice is re­lated to the name of the na­tional leader Hey­dar Aliyev. Thanks to the at­ten­tion and care of the Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev, this ser­vice has en­tered a qual­i­ta­tively new stage. As a re­sult of the agree­ment on the es­tab­lish­ment of the Coast Guard of the State Bor­der Ser­vice, signed by the Head of State in Fe­bru­ary 2005, there has been a great deal of op­por­tu­ni­ties for the pro­tec­tion of state in­ter­ests and the safe pro­tec­tion of the sea bor­ders. The State Bor­der Ser­vice has made con­sid­er­able ef­forts to form an ef­fec­tive bor­der guard sys­tem in the Caspian Sea, us­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­per­tise in bor­der se­cu­rity.

Mo­bile food pro­cess­ing ma­chin­ery, as well as tech­nol­ogy for the re­pair of bor­der guard boats was also demon­strated.

The Re­pair Cen­ter of the Coast Guard of the State Bor­der Ser­vice pro­vides for the pro­duc­tion and re­pair of var­i­ous prod­ucts of mil­i­tary and civil pur­poses. The head of state was also in­formed about the field head­quar­ters, which be­gan to be used in the pro­tec­tion of state bor­ders, field bar­racks and field ser­vices of pub­lic ser­vices of bor­der guards.

To­day, spe­cial at­ten­tion is be­ing paid to im­prov­ing the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of bor­der guards. Con­duct­ing an­nual com­bat and tac­ti­cal ex­er­cises in­volv­ing staff from the Coast Guard has played an im­por­tant role in rais­ing com­bat readi­ness, en­hanc­ing pro­fes­sional skills in ex­treme con­di­tions. Azer­bai­jan's bor­der guards hold ex­er­cises in Caspian Sea in Au­gust, 2018. All train­ing ex­er­cises were per­formed at night and dur­ing the day shoot­ing of ships' guns, the per­son­nel showed great skill.

The sign­ing of the Con­ven­tion on the Le­gal Sta­tus of the Caspian Sea on Au­gust 12, 2018 at the 5th Caspian sum­mit Ak­tau is a his­toric event and an im­por­tant achieve­ment for Azer­bai­jan.

The con­struc­tion of a new ship with per­fect nav­i­ga­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion equip­ment, modern weapons, in­clud­ing mis­sile and mis­sile weapons, night and day ob­ser­va­tion sys­tems and hy­droa­cous­tic in­stal­la­tion was ac­com­plished on April 30, 2018. In sea con­di­tions a he­li­copter can land on the deck of a 62me­ter long bor­der guard ship equipped with high-speed boats and ca­pa­ble of car­ry­ing out ser­vice tasks in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions on the Caspian Sea.The new ship will be used in the per­for­mance of of­fi­cial as­sign­ments re­lated to the pro­tec­tion of state bor­ders, the pro­vi­sion of regime in bor­der wa­ters, the safety of the in­fra­struc­ture for the ex­trac­tion and trans­porta­tion of hy­dro­car­bon re­sources.
