The president said that today there are no other countries in the world to be as closely related and close to each other, as Turkey and Azerbaijan.

"There are so many things to confirm this unity. One of them, as my dear brother said, is Turkey's invitation to Azerbaijan to the G20 summit," he said.

"It is a great honor for us," he said, adding, "First of all, because the invitation was made by Turkey, and this once again shows the Turkish and Azerbaijani people, and all the peoples in the world, how close we are to each other."

President Aliyev said that the cooperation in the defense sphere is being expanded between the two countries.

"We have purchased many weapons and ammunition from Turkey, he said. "Meanwhile, today, exchange of views was held on the joint manufacturing of defense industry products in Azerbaijan."

"We are glad for Turkey's great achievements," Aliyev said, adding that today, Turkey is a center of power on a global scale.

Aliyev said that the stronger Turkey gets, the stronger Azerbaijan will be.

"Our strength is naturally our political strength, economic and military power. Therefore, we have great plans for deepening the cooperation in the defense sphere," he said.

The president said joint Turkish-Azerbaijani military exercises were held within several days, adding that from now on, these exercises will be held regularly.

Aliyev said that today, the Turkish-Azerbaijani unity, cooperation is the important factor on the global scale, adding that no one can deny this factor.

"Turkey and Azerbaijan are developing even in the most crisis years," he said. "Welfare of the people is improving, our role is increasing on the global scale and our international positions are becoming stronger."

"This gives ground to say that Turkey and Azerbaijan will be developing in coming years and we will see more progress," Aliyev added.
