“We will leave for Baku together with Mr. Elmar Mammadyarov. Azerbaijan is our brotherly country, with which we always have close relations and share the same fate. It was so in the past and will be so in future. Let no one doubt it. After the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus I will pay my first official foreign visit to Azerbaijan,” he said.

Ahmet Davutoglu said he would meet with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Baku: “I will meet with President Ilham Aliyev and Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov in Baku. We will discuss all issues, including Nagorno Karabakh conflict. Activeness is felt in Nagorno Karabakh conflict, which remains frozen for 17 years. Armenia’s keeping Azerbaijan’s territories under occupation is not the situation meeting the interests of both Turkey and Azerbaijan. Azerbaijani and Armenian Presidents will have meetings soon in various formats. We hope that this activeness will result with a solution satisfying all parties of the frozen conflict”. Ahmed Davudoglu said he shared the views told by Azerbaijani officials about the OSCE Minsk Group: “The history also proves the justness of these views, because no progress has been achieved in solution of the conflict during the past period. It’s time to take out this issue from the status of the frozen conflict. Turkey will continue its endeavors in this direction”.
