Terrorists will not be allowed to turn Islam into tool in their hands: Turkish FM


Terrorists will not be allowed to turn Islam into a tool in their hands, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a joint press conference following the trilateral meeting with his Azerbaijani and Pakistani counterparts in Baku on Nov. 30, APA reports.

 

“Turkey and Pakistan are in fight against numerous terrorist organizations. We will not allow terrorists to turn Islam into a tool in their hands,” said Cavusoglu.

 

He said that today’s trilateral meeting was aimed at finding ways to further develop ties between the three countries.

 

Cavusoglu underscored the need to increase the trade turnover between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Pakistan.

 

“In particular, we can strengthen our cooperation in the defense sphere. We are not opponents in this area, we complement each other,” he added.

 

Cavusoglu also reiterated Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan and Pakistan in Nagorno-Karabakh and Kashmir conflicts.

 

“We should always demonstrate solidarity in the settlement of the Karabakh, Kashmir and Cyprus issues,” he noted.

 

He went on to say that the 7th Ministerial Conference of the Heart of Asia – Istanbul Process (HoA-IP) will be held in Baku on December 1.

 

“Azerbaijan is gradually strengthening its role in the world. We are thinking of raising this ministerial format to the level of the presidents,” Cavusoglu concluded.
