Baku, 25 February 2023 (TDI): Jeyhun Bayramov, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and Mevlüt Cavuşoglu, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Turkiye spoke over the phone.

Measures to mitigate the effects of the devastating earthquake that killed many people in Turkey were addressed during the phone call, as well as preparations for the upcoming summit of the Organization of Turkic States.

The Ministers also discussed other topics of shared interest, such as the region’s present state of affairs.

Azerbaijan aid to quake-hit Turkey

After a significant earthquake that caused the collapse of dozens of structures and many fatalities struck the nation, Azerbaijan sent a squad of 370 people to help with rescue efforts in Turkiye.

To assist AFAD (Disaster and Emergency Management Authority) and other teams, Azerbaijan sends a 370-person search and rescue squad to the earthquake-affected areas.

The relationship between Turkiye and Azerbaijan is complex and important. The primary engine of bilateral relations is regular high-level contacts.

High-ranking officials now routinely travel to one another’s nations soon after taking office or following events of symbolic significance.

Azerbaijan’s foreign policy prioritizes deepening this strategic partnership in order to promote regional and global security.

The trilateral and quadrilateral mechanisms that were set up in conjunction with Azerbaijan are significant institutions that contribute to regional security, peace, and prosperity.

The Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic is crucial to Turkish relations with Azerbaijan as it serves as the only land link between the two countries and serves as our main point of interaction with Azerbaijanis.

Turkey has consistently supported Azerbaijan’s just stance regarding Armenia’s illegitimate military occupation of its internationally recognized territories.

In addition, there is a successful history of cooperation in all areas within the framework of international organizations.
