    You have always made a great contribution to the development of military cooperation between Azerbaijan and Türkiye and the improvement of the Azerbaijani army, increasing its combat capability.

    You have always provided moral support to the Azerbaijani people and our army in the Patriotic War for the liberation of our lands from occupation.

    You have always loved Azerbaijan and the Azerbaijani army.

    I am sure that you will spare no effort to strengthen the armies of both fraternal countries during your activities in the Grand National Assembly of Türkiye.

    I congratulate you on my own behalf and on behalf of the personnel of the Azerbaijani army, I wish you success in your future activities."

    Furthermore, Hasanov congratulated Yasar Guler as Türkiye’s new defence minister.

    "As the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Türkiye, you consistently supported the improvement and increase of the combat capability of the Azerbaijan Army. I am sure that our joint activities will continue at the highest level during your tenure" as the new Turkish defence minister.
