Dear Mr. President,

Dear Brother,

We have been deeply saddened by the news of strong forest fires in various regions of fraternal Turkey and their consequences.

I am confident that thanks to the decisive steps taken by the government under your leadership, the selfless and militant people of Turkey will soon cope with this scourge.

The government and people of Azerbaijan are, as always, in solidarity with the fraternal people of Turkey and stand by their side.

On my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, let me express our deep condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed in the devastating fires. I wish the wounded a speedy recovery.

May Allah rest the souls of those killed!

Ilham Aliyev

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
