Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday presented his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev a new book by the Anadolu agency, which tells about the 44-day war for the liberation of Karabakh last autumn.
The book contains photographs awarded by the “Anadolu” agency.
The first part of the book examines the historical background of the war, while the second part presents news and photographs of A.A. documenting the 44-day war.
The third part contains articles on the results of the victory in Karabakh both at the regional and international levels.
The introduction to the book was written by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the foreword by the Chairman of the Board and General Director of AA Serdar Karagöz.
Anadolu Agency leaves its mark in the future
“Glorious Victory in Karabakh is a symbol of pride, which proves to the whole world that the motto of Turkey and Azerbaijan“ one nation, two states ”is relevant in the 21st century,” President Erdogan wrote in his opening remarks.
“On September 27, 2020, the Turkish nation and state, using all their capabilities, took the side of their Azerbaijani brothers and sisters in the face of attacks by the occupying forces of Armenia. This will continue to be so, ”he continued.
The Turkish President also paid tribute to the memory of “all the martyrs who gave their lives for the liberation of Karabakh and the occupied Azerbaijani lands” and wished recovery to the injured war veterans.
“I once again congratulate the President of Azerbaijan, my brother Ilham Aliyev on military, political and diplomatic successes, and sincerely congratulate the Azerbaijani people on their worthy position,” he added.
Congratulating AA on the publication of the book, the head of state noted that the agency’s activities “leave a mark in the future.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to the management and staff of the Anadolu agency who created this work,” he wrote.
In the foreword to the book, Serdar Karagöz spoke about the hard work of A.A., whose staff showed dedication, courage and professionalism to tell the world about the Karabakh war day after day through memorable photographs, while many world news outlets ignored what was happening.
“We hope that this work will remain for future generations as a significant document testifying to Azerbaijani-Turkish friendship and brotherhood. Karabakh is Azerbaijan, ”he wrote.
Karagöz also honored the memory of Azerbaijani soldiers who died during the liberation of the occupied lands.
