Azerbaijan Dedicates Monument in Nakhichevan to Turkish Soldiers

A monument dedicated "to the memory of Turks who defended Nakhichevan against Armenian invaders during World War I" was recently opened in the Ordubad region of Nakhichevan. The monument will be located not too far from the centuries-old Armenian cemetery in Old Julfa–which was destroyed by Azeri forces in late 2005.

During the opening ceremony–Turkish Army commander Jelaled Bacanli said that the Turkish army will always stand beside their Azeri brothers–just as they have in the past.

"The Turkish people and the Turkish Armed Forces will always stand by Azerbaijan’s side," said Bacanli.

"Azerbaijan’s problems are our problems–their joy–our joy," he said–borrowing a saying from Kemal Ataturk.
