Peace treaty between Baku, Yerevan to have positive consequences for region

    REGION  22 May 2024 - 20:25

    Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan has said that the signing of the peace treaty between Baku and Yerevan will have positive consequences for the entire region as he addressed the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of Turkic States.

    Noting that Azerbaijan liberated its lands from 30-year Armenian occupation and opened the way to lasting peace in the South Caucasus, Fidan emphasized that the return of four occupied villages by Armenia to Azerbaijan, as well as the May 11 meeting of Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov and his Armenian counterpart Ararat Mirzoyan in the Kazakh city of Almaty are positive moments, Trend reports.

    The Turkish minister also reiterated his country's full support for Azerbaijan, particularly in the context of the Karabakh conflict and recent positive developments.

    He expressed optimism that a final peace agreement between Azerbaijan and Armenia would benefit not only the two countries but the entire region.

    The minister also stressed the need for the Turkic world to cooperate and integrate with defense and security, transforming the region into a "corridor of prosperity and stability" like other areas, TRT Haber reports.

    "Türkiye has always been ready to provide all kinds of support to the brotherly Turkic states in the field of defense industry cooperation."

    He underscored the desire to take steps toward defense cooperation that would contribute to the prosperity of all countries in the region, from Türkiye to Central Asia, including conflicts like "terrorism, migration, and border security" in Afghanistan, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.

    "We are in a period when Asia continues to rise, and the importance of the Turkic geography increases day by day. As a result, we observe that the interest of actors outside the region in our geography is also increasing," he said.

    Fidan also underscored the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC)'s integration into the Turkic world and participation in TÜRKPA and TDT (Organization of Turkic States) activities.

    Furthermore, he noted that the economy, trade, and finance sectors have become high-policy areas, comparable to military power, highlighting the strategic importance of these networks among Turkic states, including initiatives such as the Middle Corridor.

    He emphasized the need for Turkic states to adapt to high-tech and green transitions to remain competitive on a global scale.

    He also spoke about increasing TÜRKPA's institutional capacity and visibility, as well as the role of the Turkish Investment Fund in supporting regional projects.

    The meeting, titled "Defense and Security Architecture Among TÜRKPA Member States," was held at the Grand National Assembly of Türkiye in the capital Ankara and was attended by representatives from friendly and brotherly countries Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and the TRNC Assembly.
