Azerbaijan`s victory is Turkey`s victory and Azerbaijan`s losses are Turkey`s losses, TRT Haber news channel quoted Omer Celik, spokesman for Turkey`s ruling Justice and Development Party, as saying April 7.
He said the two countries always support each other.
"Azerbaijan is of special importance for us," said Celik, adding that Azerbaijan has repeatedly shown its brotherly attitude towards Turkey.
On the night of April 2, 2016, all the frontier positions of Azerbaijan were subjected to heavy fire from the Armenian side, which used large-caliber weapons, mortars and grenade launchers. The armed clashes resulted in deaths and injuries among the Azerbaijani population.
Azerbaijan responded with a counter-attack, which led to liberation of several strategic heights and settlements.
Military operations were stopped on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian armies on Apr. 5 at 12:00 (UTC/GMT + 4 hours) with the consent of the sides, Azerbaijan`s Defense Ministry earlier said. Ignoring the agreement, the Armenian side again started violating the ceasefire.
