Azerbaijani President receives Turkish Foreign Minister in Baku
Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev has received Turkey's foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu on Tuesday, Oct. 6, amid the ongoing border clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
TWO COUNTRIES WILL EXCHANGE VIEWS ON PRESENT SITUATION
Çavuşoğlu is on a working visit to Azerbaijan and will “exchange view on the present situation in Armenian occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan as well as on other current regional and international developments” with his counterpart Ceyhun Bayramov.
Relations between the two former Soviet republics have been tense since 1991, when the Armenian military occupied Upper Karabakh, an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan.
Multiple UN resolutions, as well as many international organizations, demand the withdrawal of the invading forces.
Many world powers, including Russia, France, and the US, have urged an immediate cease-fire. Turkey, meanwhile, has supported Baku's right to self-defense.
