No: 17, 14 January 2022, Press Release Regarding The 30th Anniversary Of Reestablishment Of Our Diplomatic Relations With Azerbaijan

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 14.01.2022

Today, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the reestablishment of our diplomatic relations with friendly and brotherly Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan declared her strong will to become a member of the international community enjoying equal rights on 29 October 1991 coinciding with the 68th anniversary of our Republic and gave us twice the reason to celebrate on that day.

Türkiye officially recognized the Republic of Azerbaijan without delay, and diplomatic relations were established with the signing of the “Protocol on Reestablishment of Diplomatic Relations between the Republic of Türkiye and the Republic of Azerbaijan”.

Türkiye became the first state to establish diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan after declaring independence.

During the past three decades, Türkiye stood by friendly and brotherly Azerbaijan in both good and difficult times, showing this once again by greatly rejoicing as the valiant Azerbaijan Armed Forces liberated the occupied territories in the 44-day long Patriotic War.

The will that shapes our relations, which are elevated to the alliance status with the Shusha Declaration signed on 15 June 2021, shall continue as before.

This approach is also befitting the statements of Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Republic of Türkiye, that “Azerbaijan’s joy is our joy, and her sorrow is our sorrow” and of Haydar Aliyev, National Leader of Azerbaijan, that “One nation, two states”.

After three decades, today, there is a much stronger Türkiye and much stronger Azerbaijan, whose fraternity and close cooperation is also the assurance for peace and stability in their common region.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the reestablishment of our diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan, we look to the future with confidence and reiterate our determination for cooperation towards common welfare and development.

Atatürk
