Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 28 / Trend A. Akhundov /
Beko sells its products in Khankendi, but this is not Turkey's official position, Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan Hulusi Kilic said in an interview with media on Monday.
"Beko sells its products in many countries," he said. "Turkey's position on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is known. We always supported Azerbaijan."
According to information, Beko opened a branch in the Azerbaijani occupied territories. According to the Armenian site beko.am, the Turkish company in Armenia is represented by "ED-SPO". It has a network of 12 stores in the country. The 13th shop was opened in Khankendi.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
