President Ilham Aliyev hailed Pakistan's resolute support to Baku on Wednesday over the escalating tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan, one of the world's oldest conflicts that re-erupted as heavy border clashes broke out on Sundaym Yeni Safak reports.

Praising Pakistan for always standing in solidarity with Azerbaijan and expressing his gratitude, Aliyev said, "Pakistan is a country that does not recognize Armenia for its occupation of Azerbaijani lands. This is a true demonstration of brotherhood," as he received letters of credentials from Bilal Hayee, Pakistan's newly-appointed Ambassador to Azerbaijan.

“Azerbaijan has always supported Pakistan in all matters, including in the Kashmir issue. This mutual support reflects the brotherly nature of our cooperation,” Azerbaijan's state news agency quoted him as saying.

Border clashes broke out early Sunday when Armenian forces targeted Azerbaijani civilian settlements and military positions, leading to multiple casualties.

Azerbaijan's parliament declared a state of war in some cities and areas, following Armenia's border violations and attacks in the occupied Upper Karabakh region, also known as Nagorno-Karabakh.

Azerbaijan additionally declared partial military mobilization on Monday.
