Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has expressed his gratitude to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a ceremony marking the anniversary of the Karabakh victory.
In a colorful program on Monday, he paid tribute to the martyrs of the war and thanked the countrymen.
Azerbaijan took control of the Karabakh region 30 years after defeating neighboring Armenia in a six-week war on November 8, 2020.
In September 2020, Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a six-week war over Nagorno-Karabakh. Later, the two countries came to a peace agreement mediated by Russia.
During the war, the Azerbaijani army recaptured much of the territory occupied by Armenia in the 1990s.
Anadolu reports that Turkey is providing military assistance in the war, including sophisticated drones. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev expressed his gratitude to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for this.
In response, Erdogan said that Turkey and Azerbaijan are two nations but one nation. We are one in mind. We are each other’s brothers.
In addition to Azerbaijan, Ankara also celebrates the first anniversary of the Karabakh war victory. It was attended by the Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Turkey Rashed Mammadov.
Several other organizations, including the Turkish-Azerbaijani Friendship Co-operation and Solidarity Foundation, are celebrating the anniversary of Karabakh’s victory in Turkey.
Azerbaijan’s ambassador to Afghanistan Rashed Mammadov said, “Turkey has done everything we needed in the war in Karabakh.” We are grateful to our Turkish brothers and sisters for this. This victory is not only the victory of Azerbaijan, but also the victory of Turkey.
