Congratulating Azerbaijan on liberating its occupied territories, Turkey’s foreign minister on Tuesday has called the Karabakh deal a “great victory” for Baku.

“We will continue to stand with Azerbaijan. This [deal] is a great success and victory for Azerbaijan. Lands, under occupation for 30 years are being liberated,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a joint news conference with his Kyrgyz counterpart Ruslan Kazakbaev in the capital Ankara.

He said Turkey is in contact with all parties on monitoring the deal to end the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute.

“Finally, Pashinyan [Armenian Prime Minister] and the Armenian army had to give up,” Cavusoglu said, adding that Armenia has paid a heavy price for its unrelenting pursuit of war and conflict.

“We are pleased with the support that the Turkic Council has extended to Azerbaijan,” Cavusoglu said, stressing the need for all brotherly countries to show their solidarity.
