    The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry voiced concern over attempted military coup in Turkey and expressed support to the Turkish nation, the ministry's spokesman Hikmet Hajiev told Sputnik on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Friday, Turkey was rocked by an attempted military takeover in the capital Ankara and the country’s largest city Istanbul. However, thousands of people poured out on the streets reportedly protesting the attempted coup.

    "Azerbaijan is appalled and concerned over developments in Turkey. This is an attempt to overthrow the government which was elected by the Turkish people in a democratic way," Hajiev said, voicing support to the Turkish nation and hope for the soonest stabilization of the situation in Turkey.

    Hajiev called on Azerbaijani nationals staying in Turkey to be careful and urged to avoid walking on the streets.
