‘Azerbaijan troop mandate must be beyond political polemics’

The Azerbaijan troop mandate that is expected to be submitted to Parliament must be held out of political polemics, Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Group Deputy Chairman Bülent Turan said on Sunday.


“The Azerbaijan mandate had been accepted by all parties in the Parliament except for the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP). I hope the Republican People’s Party (CHP) does not repeat the mistake in the recent mandate and we have the chance to underline with our state, our security forces, our armies that we are on the side of our Azerbaijani brothers with all our parties’ support,” he said.


The mandate on sending troops to Azerbaijan had been accepted on Nov. 17, 2020.

The Assembly granted permission for a period of one year to send the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) to foreign countries to fulfill the commitments arising from the provisions of the Strategic Partnership and Mutual Assistance Agreement between Turkey and Azerbaijan, to…carry out the duties of the Joint Center.

In this context, it is expected that the term of duty of Turkish soldiers in Azerbaijan will be extended for one more year as of Nov. 17, 2021.


The motion allows the Turkish military to carry out cross-border operations in northern Iraq and Syria for two more years, from Oct. 30, 2021, until Oct. 30, 2023….

…Turkey threw its support behind Azerbaijan [over] the Nagorno-Karabakh region….


Turkey on Friday reiterated its commitment to supporting Azerbaijan further.

“We will continue to stand by our Azerbaijani brothers in their just cause, as we have done so far,” he said.
