Baku, April 4 AZERTAC
Azerbaijani Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the State Committee for Refugees and IDPs Ali Hasanov has hailed his country`s relations with Turkey. “Azerbaijani-Turkish unity is historical and will continue for centuries,” he told Turkish media representatives who are on a visit in Azerbaijan organized by the Turkish Journalists Federation.
Mr. Hasanov praised joint activities of Azerbaijani and Turkish diasporas towards increasing the world community`s awareness of each other`s realities.
“Turkey has always assisted Azerbaijan in removing heavy consequences of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and supported our just cause. Today the Turkish and Muslim world should jointly fight against Armenian aggressors,” he added.
The Deputy Premier drew the Turkish journalists` attention to four resolutions of the UN Security Council demanding unconditional and immediate withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the occupied Azerbaijani lands.
“The Armenians` aggressive policy was also condemned in the resolutions of the OSCE, PACE, OIC, Non-Aligned Movement and other international organizations. Armenia refuses to honour the requirements of the international community and continues its illegal activity in Azerbaijan`s occupied lands. The negotiations, brokered by the OSCE` Minsk Group, has continued for more than 20 years but without any results,” he added.
Mr. Hasanov also provided an insight into overall successes of the country out under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev.
Representative of the Turkish Journalists Federation Yilmaz Karaca stressed the importance of increasing the number of such meetings.
