The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be settled in accordance with the principle of territorial integrity and international law, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a joint press conference with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Ankara on April 25, APA reports.
Turkey intends to enhance cooperation with Azerbaijan in the military and defense areas, Erdogan noted.
"May 28, 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. I would like to congratulate the people of Azerbaijan on this occasion. This year events will be organized to mark Baku’s liberation with the support of the Islamic Army of the Caucasus,” the Turkish leader said.
Erdogan stated that Ilham Aliyev was quick to offer support for Turkey during the July 15 coup attempt.
"The state and people of Azerbaijan also stood by us during Operation Olive Branch conducted by the Turkish army in Syria,” he said.
Erdogan added that numerous important documents will be signed between Turkey and Azerbaijan at the 7th meeting of the Turkey-Azerbaijan High Level Strategic Cooperation Council.
