Aliyev thanked Erdogan for help in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev thanked his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his assistance amid the escalation of tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“Your firm and unequivocal position on the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, your unshakable support for our cause are a vivid example of our solidarity and are very valuable for our people”, – Aliyev said.

As News Front reported earlier, the escalation of tension on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border began in late September. The parties exchanged accusations of shelling and began to mobilize troops. Turkey also took the side of Azerbaijan. Pursuing its own interests, it began to escalate the situation in the region, transferring fighters from Syrian terrorist groups here.
