Baku, Azerbaijan, March 16
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev's visit to Ankara in the current conditions is commendable, Arzu Naghiyev, political analyst, deputy director general of Trend news agency, said.
Naghiyev said that this action, an important gesture, showed that Azerbaijan supports fraternal Turkey in such a difficult period.
"President Aliyev once again demonstrated the high level of friendly and fraternal relations between Azerbaijan and Turkey," he said. "Turkey and Azerbaijan are linked by historical ties. Historically, Turkey and Azerbaijan always supported each other."
