Türkiye is not alone: Azerbaijani President Aliyev

Those with treacherous plans against Türkiye should know that Türkiye is not alone and that the Azerbaijani army will always stand by the Turkish army [currently intensifying its wars in Iraq and Syria], Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said at an international conference on Saturday.

“[T]he Turkish army is not alone, the Azerbaijani army is always ready to help and support. Likewise, the Turkish army has always stood by our army….Those who want to provoke and scare us at our borders should not forget this,” Aliyev stressed.


Noting that the two countries have strong ties from past to present, the Azerbaijani president said, “Türkiye and Azerbaijan are brothers, friends and allies. Last year we formalized the results obtained in Shusha. [In conquered Nagorno-Karabakh.] We officially became allies by signing the declaration of the alliance. I say once again that this is the formalization of reality.”

Raising relations between Türkiye and Azerbaijan to the level of an alliance, the Shusha declaration was inked in a ceremony attended by the presidents of the two countries in the Azerbaijani city of Shusha. The declaration focuses on defense cooperation and establishing new transportation routes, affirming the joint efforts by the two armies…and the restructuring and modernization of their armed forces.

Türkiye was a key backer of Azerbaijan during the 44-day Karabakh War between Azerbaijan and Armenia that erupted on Sept. 27, 2020….
