ArmInfo. "The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is also our issue." Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said this in a press statement after the 8th meeting of the Azerbaijan-Turkey High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council in Baku.
"The settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict within the framework of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan is our greatest desire," the Turkish president emphasized.
APA reports that Erdogan was supported by his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev in this matter, who assured that it was the unconstructive position of Armenia that was the main obstacle to the settlement of the conflict.
At the same time, Aliyev Jr. assured that the extremely contradictory and contradictory statements of the Armenian leadership cause great damage to the negotiation process.
"They either say that Nagorno-Karabakh is Armenia, they claim that Nagorno-Karabakh is an independent state. It turns out that they themselves do not know what Nagorno-Karabakh is. If we don't know, we can tell you: Nagorno-Karabakh is Azerbaijan. We and the whole world are talking about this. All countries of the world recognize and support the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, and not a single state recognizes an illegal entity called Nagorno-Karabakh. Of course, the conflict must be resolved within the framework of territorial integrity, sovereignty of our country, the inviolability of our borders. Turkey is the country that provides the greatest support to Azerbaijan on a global scale. I thank you again for this, "Aliyev concluded.
