President Erdoğan made some statements regarding Armenia’s violations against Azerbaijan. Underlining that the international community acts with double-standard, Erdoğan vowed to stand by Azerbaijan.
President Erdoğan said on Twitter:
“Adding a new one to its attacks against Azerbaijan, Armenia once again shows that it is the biggest threat to peace in the region. Turkish Nation fully stands by its Azerbaijani brothers, as always.”
“The international community, which could not show a necessary and sufficient response to Armenia’s provocative aggression, once again proves its double standards. The Minsk Group, which acted with its negligent attitude for about 30 years, unfortunately, is far from acting in a solution-oriented manner. While we call for the Armenian people to claim their future against their rulers and those who use them like a puppet, we call on the whole world to stand by Azerbaijan in their struggle against occupation and oppression.”
“Just as I conveyed to my brother Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev whose persevering and resolute stance I witnessed in the phone call we held today, Turkey will reinforce its solidarity with Azerbaijani brethren and sisters with the mindset of “one nation, two states”.”
Turkey strongly condemns attacks

In addition, the President of Defense Industries İsmail Demir said, “Turkish defense industry is at Azerbaijani’s disposal with every means possible.”
