Turkey's military exports to Azerbaijan jump 610%

PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey’s military exports to its ally Azerbaijan jumped a whopping 610% in the first 11 months of this year, during which Baku fought a brutal conflict against Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Middle East Eye reports.

Turkish exports for the time totaled nearly $256m, according to the Turkey Exporters Union’s latest data release.

During the September-November conflict in Karabakh, Ankara provided unprecedented support for Baku. Turkey shipped armed Bayraktar attack drones and supplied smart munitions including precision-guided missiles, while Turkish military staff helped to shape Azerbaijan's strategy to capture significant chunks of territory.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev on November 9 signed a statement to end the war in Karabakh after almost 45 days. Under the deal, the Armenian side is returning all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
