Baku, Azerbaijan – Speaking to the British BBC, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev asked a British reporter: “Will Turkey intervene?” Turkey’s intervention against the question is not necessary at the moment,” he said.

Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev made the remarks to the British BBC.

“I don’t want to look too far, because it will depend on the situation on the battlefield, “Aliyev said, answering the question of” Will the day come when Turkey will intervene? It will depend on the behavior of Armenia and other countries. Because I have said many times that we are against the internationalization of the conflict. We asked all countries, neighboring countries, non-neighboring countries to stay away from this conflict. We are fighting on our own internationally recognized soil. This is our belief. I think that what is happening now will continue, so there will be no need for the intervention of the Turkish army. But many years ago, we signed a document with Turkey that provides military support in case of outside intervention. If Azerbaijan is attacked from outside and Azerbaijan needs Turkish military support, we will consider this option,” he said.
