Israel’s Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman traveled to Azerbaijan a month ago for meetings on expanding commerce between the countries and securing the importation of oil and other products to Israel, in light of supply problems from Ukraine and Russia because of the war.

The talks' topics included the importation of wheat from Azerbaijan, which does not currently grow wheat in large quantities for export. According to sources at the Finance Ministry and the Agriculture Ministry, deals were struck for Israeli agricultural technology to help increase wheat production in Azerbaijan. The goal is to start buying wheat from Azerbaijan in 2025.
