A delegation of the Turkish parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee paid a visit to the Azerbaijani capital of Baku on Wednesday. 

The delegation led by the head of the Turkish parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee Volkan Bozkir met the Turkey Friendship Group at Azerbaijan’s National Assembly, members from the International Relations Commission and Turkish businesspeople working in Azerbaijan.

Many topics including the latest developments in Syria's Idlib and the Upper Karabakh issue were discussed during talks.

Underlining the importance of the Upper Karabakh issue for Turkey, Bozkir said: “[…] We will not open our border with Armenia until the Upper Karabakh issue is resolved.”

Stating that they were already holding trilateral commission talks with Azerbaijan and Georgia, he said they would expand this platform to others, namely Turkey-Azerbaijan-Iran, Turkey-Azerbaijan-Pakistan and Turkey-Azerbaijan-Georgia-Ukraine.

Azerbaijan and Armenia remain in dispute over the occupied Karabakh region. Karabakh broke away from Azerbaijan in 1991 with Armenian military support, and a peace process has yet to be implemented.
