BAKU (Combined Sources)—Azeri President Ilham Aliyev and visiting top Turkish diplomats held talks over the weekend on recent developments in the Caucasus, the Anatolia news agency reported.

The meeting between Aliyev, Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Ambassador Feridun Sinirlioglu and Ambassador Unal Cevikoz, the deputy undersecretary for the Caucasus and Central Asia, was held on Saturday following a Friday telephone conversation between Aliyev and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. 

During Friday’s conversation Erdogan briefed Aliyev on normalization efforts between Turkey and Armenia, while Aliyev informed Erdogan about developments regarding the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Prime Minister Erdogan’s office said in a written statement.

Ahead of their departure from Baku later on Saturday, Sinirlioglu told reporters that they explained Turkey’s views to Aliyev concerning both the normalization efforts between Turkey and Armenia and the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, without elaborating further.
