"Statement of "We stand by Azerbaijan" by officials of brother Turkey, especially President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in July of 2020, when Armenia committed provocation entitled "Tovuz events" on Armenian-Azerbaijani border, was a statement, which contained very great geopolitical changes in the region," said Hikmet Hajiyev, Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of the Foreign Policy Department of the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Azerbaijan at webinar titled "The next 10 years of Azerbaijan-Turkey relations" organized by the Center for International Relations Analysis and the Turkish Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Studies (SETA), APA reports.
According to the Assistant to President, moral, diplomatic, psychological, and political support of brother Turkey to Azerbaijan during the Patriotic War was a very important element: "These are one of the elements which contributed to Azerbaijan's victory. As a result, Azerbaijani people escaped from the occupation to which they were subjected. Nation and people of brother Turkey became happy on the Victory as much as Azerbaijani people."
