"Your visit is of great importance, of course, because our inter-parliamentary relations are also developing very successfully. We are always together and support each other, both bilaterally and within international organizations. Of course, the support provided by Turkey during the second Karabakh war delighted all the people of Azerbaijan, as you know. And this is natural," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as received a delegation led by Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Akif Cagatay Kilic, APA reports.
"Because our two brotherly countries are always next to each other. The political and moral support given to us by my dear brother, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, from the first hours inspired us a lot, of course. At the same time, the Speaker of the Turkish Grand National Assembly, Mustafa Sentop, and members of parliament expressed their solidarity and support. In other words, the days of war showed again how much our peoples are attached to each other, how much they love and respect each other. At a recent summit of the Economic Cooperation Organization, my dear brother, the President of Turkey, said very kind words about Azerbaijan and our victory. As you know, a military parade was held in Baku at the end of last year to celebrate this victory.
I should also note that the Turkish media and all public organizations showed great support for Azerbaijan during this war. We appreciate that very much. A new situation has emerged in our region now. A new reality has been created. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has been consigned to history. It has been resolved. It is over. We must now look to the future and think about cooperation in our region, especially about the implementation of transport projects. The opening of the Zangazur corridor is one of the most important issues on the agenda now. I am confident that we will achieve this through joint effort. Greetings again. Welcome to Azerbaijan!," noted the President.
