Respective bodies are taking measures to evacuate Azerbaijani students from Turkey’s earthquake-ravaged Elazığ and Malatya.

Report says, citing the press service of Azerbaijan’s Cabinet of Ministers, that President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev instructed on evacuating the students.

Azerbaijani Embassy to Turkey earlier said that more than 500 Azerbaijani students receive education in the Turkish cities of Elazığ and Malatya hit by the earthquake. While most of the students left for Azerbaijan due to winter vacations, some stayed for exams. The embassy urged the students’ parents not to panic.
