The existing level of Azerbaijani-Turkish relations makes it necessary to conduct joint military trainings, Zahid Oruj, MP and member of the Parliament's Security and Defense Committee, told Trend on Wednesday.
He said the Azerbaijani-Turkish relations rose to a more significant level due to the Council for Strategic Cooperation established last year.
"After the Council was established, it became clear that cooperation between Azerbaijan and Turkey was at the stage of becoming the real, working model having functional goals where structuring is broadly practiced and tasks were distributed," he noted.
The agreement envisions cooperation in the sphere of defense and in other spheres between Azerbaijan and Turkey, assistance in supply of arms, and cooperation between production units, the MP said.
The agreement of establishment of the Council for high-level Strategic Cooperation creates legal base for that, he believes.
"In the past, generals and officers of Turkish Armed Forces helped form the military system of Azerbaijan. It is now time to establish common commandment and exchange mutual military experience through military trainings," Oruj said.
He said Azerbaijan needs Turkey's experience. Azerbaijan can always offer its support to fight Turkey's enemies.
The issue of military trainings, regardless from who and what conclusions makes of this, meets our national interests and security, he believes.
"Joint military trainings will create perfect opportunities for to-be cooperation," Oruj said.
