“The agreement that we signed has historic importance,” Aliyev told reporters after putting his signature on the document. According to him, the agreement covers all areas of cooperation between the two countries, including the defense sphere. Aliyev and Erdogan signed the declaration after completing their one-on-one talks.
Erdogan is paying an official visit to Azerbaijan and travelled to the town of Shusha, which was handed over to Baku after the recent hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh on June 15. The two presidents held negotiations in this town. It is expected that Erdogan will speak to the Azerbaijani parliament and attend the Euro 2020 football match between Turkey and Wales on June 16.
