“Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and I discussed the issue of joint investment in third countries by SOCAR and TPAO (Türkiye Petrolleri Anonim Ortaklığı) companies, if necessary. I think we will continue to work on this issue further,” Erdogan said yesterday in Shusha following the talks with Aliyev.
