It is expected that the aircraft will land in Turkey today in the evening. In this regard, we express our gratitude to the brotherly Republic of Turkey. This is yet another bright example of the Azerbaijan and Turkey brotherhood.

We express our gratitude to the Government of the People’s Republic of China for their support rendered to our citizens and solidarity with the friendly People and Government of China in their temporary hard times.
