Turkish, Azerbaijani presidents meet, no statement released
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a meeting on Tuesday with Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev who arrived in Turkey's central city of Konya to attend the opening ceremony of Islamic Solidarity Games.
The meeting of the two presidents was not open to the media, and there was neither a press conference held after the meeting, nor a statement issued by the sides.
The meeting follows a violation of ceasefire and deadly clashes between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh in early August. The ceasefire was violated by Azerbaijani units according to Russian officials.
The two presidents also attended a dinner held on the occasion of the opening of Islamic Solidarity Games.
The dinner was attended by senior officials of several countries, including the prime ministers of Algeria, Albany, Palestine, the President of the Turkish Cypriot administration in northern Cyprus, and the Saudi Arab Sports Minister.
Islamic Solidarity Games is a multinational sports event organized every four years by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. It was first organized in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in 2005.
