Turkey will continue to support the just position of Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh issue, Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan Ismail Alper Coshgun told journalists.
He noted that Azerbaijan and Turkey are connected not only by political, but also by economic relations. Joint economic projects implemented by Azerbaijan and Turkey can be shown as an example.
The ambassador added that Turkey is strengthening stability in the region by its strong diplomacy, politics and the economy.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group – Russia, France, and the U.S. – are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council’s four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
