Turkey, Pakistan and Afghanistan stand by Azerbaijan. The three countries believe that the Armenian occupation of Azerbaijan should be stopped. Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev thanked the countries for their support on Wednesday. He especially thanked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his strong support in the international arena. According to a report by Qatar-based Al Jazeera.
Ibrahim Aliyev said in a speech on Wednesday, “Turkey, Pakistan and Afghanistan support us.” Thank them for that. But we do not need the army’s help.
Earlier, Erdogan called for an end to the Armenian occupation of Azerbaijan. At the same time, he announced that he would stand by Azerbaijan with all his strength. On the other hand, Armenia has called on the international community to keep Turkey out of the current conflict. The United States and Russia are in contact with Turkey on the overall situation. Ankara has made it clear to the international community that Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity will continue.
Erdogan said that the crisis in the region, which began with the capture of Qarabakh in Armenia, should end.
The Turkish President said that Armenia should leave Azerbaijan immediately. Only through this can peace be established in the region.
Erdogan wrote on Twitter, “I urge the world to stand against the occupation and brutality of Azerbaijan.”
In the late 1970s, war broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Karabakh region. The conflict ended in the fall of the former Soviet Union in 1991. 30,000 people were killed in the conflict until a ceasefire was established between the two sides in 1994. Although the Qarabakh region is part of Azerbaijan, it is controlled by Armenian separatists under the aegis of the Yerevan government. This is basically the beginning of conflict.
On 26 September 2020, the two countries became embroiled in a war over the long-running dispute over the Nagorno-Karakakh region. It has so far claimed the lives of hundreds of people on both sides, including women and children. Most of the dead were identified as Armenian separatists. Azerbaijan and Armenia have blamed each other for the renewed conflict. Source: Al Jazeera, Yeni. Afaq.
