ANKARA, January 15. /TASS/. Turkey has invited Azerbaijan to take part in the Group of Twenty (G20) summit, which will be held in Antalya in November this year, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday at a news conference after talks with Azerbaijani leader Ilkham Aliyev.
“This year, Turkey will host G20. We have the right to invite a state to the summit, so, using this opportunity, we have invited Azerbaijan,” said Erdogan. He added that he expects his colleague to attend celebrations on April 24 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Canakkale.
Aliyev for his part said that the invitation to the G20 summit is “a great honor for Azerbaijan.”
“Our countries have very close interstate relations, like no other states. Today we have discussed many issues in the context of our bilateral relations,” said Aliyev. “Turkey is a powerful state, and as it enhances this power Azerbaijan’s strength will be equally growing,” he added.
