Azerbaijani President Aliyev said in his part that he was pleased over Caglayan's visit to his country.

"We are really working to multiply our successes. I am sure that the relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan will continue at a much higher level from now on," Aliyev noted.

After brief statements by Caglayan and Aliyev, the meeting continued closed to press.

Prior to his gathering with Ilham Aliyev, Minister Caglayan and an accompanying delegation paid visits to the deceased Azerbaijani President Haydar Aliyev's mausoleum in Baku, as well as Turkish and Azerbaijani martyrdoms.
