"We will make one-sided generosity to allow Nakhchivan to sell more products to Turkey," he said.

He added Turkey will buy several products from Nakhchivan like it was buying them from inside of Turkey.

"We will make the buying of 43 products from Nakhchivan like it was trade from inside of Turkish borders."

Trade volume of $120 million is expected to be opened to Nakhchivan with this move, Zeybekci said.

The Turkish minister added that trade with Nakhchivan will be done in Turkish liras.
