Disinformation and fake news campaigns are being conducted against the Turkic countries and the Turkic world should fight against it, at the international level, Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan – Head of the Foreign Policy Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmat Hajiyev said.

Hajiyev made the remark at the media forum of the Turkic Council in Istanbul.

Presidential Aide said that Azerbaijan from the first days of gaining independence has become one of the main targets of the mentioned campaigns.

“Unfortunately, such campaigns against our country are still being carried out. The best way to combat them is to present correct information about the existing realities. For delivering this truth, our joint, coordinated work and mutual support are very important,” he noted.

“It’s also extremely important to closely monitor new tendencies in social media and exchange experience. Thus, we’ll protect our countries and citizens from the pressure and influence of a speculative nature. During the 44-day war [second Karabakh War from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020], we witnessed such attacks on Azerbaijan,” added Hajiyev.
