Baku. Lachin Sultanova – APA. “After the countries of the South Caucasus gained their independence, we did our best to restore peace and welfare in the region. But the occupation of the Azerbaijani territories by Armenia made the future regional and world cooperation difficult,” Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu wrote in his article “Regional approach to the global peace” published in Russia-based magazine Rossiya v globalnoy politike, APA reports.

The minister said the relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan were unique as they were based on brotherhood and noted that owing to the developing democracy, increasing economics, human factor and natural resources Azerbaijan had become center of attraction in the Caucasus.
“But protraction of Nagorno Karabakh conflict, occupation of 20 percent of the territories by Armenia impedes Azerbaijan and the region to fully use this important potential,” he said.

Ahmet Davutoglu mentioned that being the member of OSCE Minsk Group Turkey supports peaceful solution to Nagorno Karabakh.
“Unfortunately, the mechanism of solution that is as old as the conflict itself has not produced efficient and concrete results yet. Therefore, the improvement recently reached by Ilham Aliyev and Serzh Sargsyan is very important. Minsk Group is the only international tool calling the sides to take concrete steps to eliminate the divergence of views and achieve peace agreement,” he said.
