"As you know, it is a very important day for our people today, it is a historic day. Today is the day of the liberation of Shusha. It is particularly important that you are with us on such a day", said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev while receiving Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu and the country’s Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar on November 8, APA reports.
"This is yet another example of brotherhood, yet another manifestation of brotherhood. As always, we are together in both good days and difficult times. This event once again shows how close our peoples are to each other, how close Turkey and Azerbaijan are to each other.
The President of Turkey, my dear brother Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly expressed his support for Azerbaijan over the past month and beyond, giving us additional strength by providing political and moral support with his open statements. At the same time, you, dear Minister of Defense, and our other brothers have repeatedly stated your support for Azerbaijan. You mentioned that Turkey stands by Azerbaijan. Of course, these statements, this political and moral support have also played an important role in resolving this conflict.
The liberation of our cities and villages from occupation and the liberation of Shusha, the ancient city of Azerbaijan, is, of course, a historic event. We are very pleased that you have personally come to Azerbaijan to celebrate this event with us.
Thank you very much again. During this time, the whole world, those who like us and those who don’t, saw that our unity is unshakable and eternal. This will continue to be the case. Thank you again, and welcome!", noted head of state.
