Azerbaijan is right in its cause and is defending its own lands while Armenia is an occupier and has to withdraw from the territories it occupied, Turkey’s vice president said Wednesday, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.   

In an interview with CNN Turk, Fuat Oktay said Turkey will not hesitate to provide military support to Azerbaijan as part of military cooperation agreements between the two countries if Baku makes such a request. 

Noting that Azerbaijan has liberated more than 100 settlements from the occupying forces, Oktay further stressed that Armenia must withdraw from the lands it occupied, including seven regions and Nagorno-Karabakh. 

He said there is a terrorist state that attacked civilians right after the latest cease-fire signed with Azerbaijan. 

Oktay said Azerbaijan has achieved success militarily and its operation has caused serious casualties. 

"As a matter of fact, it is not possible for the Armenian economy and army to endure this for a long time. The only way this can continue is if there is illegal support from outside."
