[PICTURES] Azerbaijanis display flags of Pakistan and Turkey in Baku and Tovuz
The Foreign Office, in a declaration, said that Pakistan considers attacks on Azerbaijan villages by the Armenian forces as "reprehensible and most unfortunate."
The flags of Turkey and Pakistan were displayed by the Azerbaijani people in the capital, Baku, after both the states supported the country in its fight against Armenia.
Azerbaijan and Armenia are engaged in the most massive fight in years over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. More than a hundred inhabitants have been killed since the clashes broke out last Sunday.
The Ambassador of the Republic of Azerbaijan to Pakistan, Ali Alizada, shared a photo on his social media showing flags of Pakistan and Turkey placed on a residential building in Baku and in the streets of Tovuz.

Earlier, Pakistan had expressed “deep concern” on the region’s deteriorating security situation after Armenian forces’ intensive shelling on Azerbaijan’s civilian population.
The Foreign Office, in a declaration, said that Pakistan considers attacks on Azerbaijan villages by the Armenian forces as “reprehensible and most unfortunate.”
“Pakistan stands with the brotherly state of Azerbaijan and supports its right of self-defense,” the FO said in a statement.

On Friday, the Foreign Office rebutted the reports that the Pakistan Army is fighting alongside Karabakh’s Azerbaijani forces.
“Such reports are misguided,” FO spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudri said in response to Indian media allegations.
