Azerbaijani president: F-16 aircraft of Turkish Air Force do not participate in hostilities in any way
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept. 29
The F-16 aircraft of the Turkish Air Force do not participate in hostilities in any way, President Ilham Aliyev said responding to questions from the hosts of "60 minutes" of the Rossiya-1 TV channel program dedicated to the recent events on the Azerbaijani-Armenian contact line, Trend reports.
“You know, taking into account modern technologies, it is very difficult to conceal anything today because there are objective forms of observation. There are satellite observations, and therefore it is very easy to verify that this is another provocation. We understand the goal of the Armenian side – by creating such false news, they first want to belittle the combat capability of the Azerbaijani Army, which is now fulfilling the task of restoring its territorial integrity with dignity and also to create the impression that the conflict is growing, that third countries are joining it. They are trying to attract as many countries as possible in order to justify their provocation. Therefore, I declare to you with full responsibility: Turkey is not a party to the conflict, does not participate in it in any way, and there is no need for this,” the head of state said.
