Ankara will continue supporting Baku and strengthening ties with Azerbaijan in all areas, a source in the Turkish presidential administration told Trend on Aug. 29.

“Turkey and Azerbaijan have not only strong political ties and common historical roots, but also joint economic and energy projects,” the source said, adding that Azerbaijan is a strategic partner of Turkey.

Strengthening relations with Azerbaijan is one of priorities for Turkey, the source noted.
