Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar attended an online meeting of NATO defence ministers, according to Turkish media.

The recent developments between Azerbaijan and Armenia were also in the spotlight during the meeting.

“We had the opportunity to express our views on what necessary steps need to be taken to ensure peace and stability. Our main position is that the main condition for the establishment of peace and stability in the South Caucasus is the immediate withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan”, the minister said.

During the meeting, Akar reiterated Turkey’s unequivocal support for Azerbaijan’s just position.
