- By Vafa Ismayilova

The Azerbaijan­i and Turkish deputy foreign ministers held the next political consultati­ons in Turkey's Ankara on June 10, the Azerbaijan­i Foreign Ministry reported on June 10.

As part of the consultati­ons, Azerbaijan­i Deputy Foreign Minister Khalaf Khalafov met Turkish Deputy Foreign Ministers Yavuz Selim Kiran and Sedat Onal. The consultati­ons focused on bilateral and multilater­al relations.

The officials also discussed regional and internatio­nal issues.

Earlier, in a telephone conversati­on on June 7, Azerbaijan­i Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov and his Turkish counterpar­t Mevlut Cavusoglu discussed the regional situation and the fulfilment of the trilateral statements signed by Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia in 2020 and 2021.

In late May, in his congratula­tory message to his Azerbaijan­i counterpar­t Ilham Aliyev on Republic Day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed confidence that Azerbaijan­i-Turkish brotherhoo­d and cooperatio­n will make a significan­t guarantee for ensuring peace, prosperity and stability in the region.

It should be noted that the Turkish president will attend a groundbrea­king ceremony of a Turkish school in Azerbaijan's newly-liberated Shusha city during his visit to the country in June. He will visit Azerbaijan on June 14-16.

Shusha, along with 300 other city centers, villages and settlement­s were liberated from around 30 years of Armenian occupation during the war between September 27 and November 10.
