Turkey intends to implement a number of agricultural projects in Azerbaijan’s Jojug Marjanli village, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Economy said, Trend reported.

This issue was discussed at a meeting between Azerbaijani Economy Minister Shahin Mustafayev and Turkish ambassador to Azerbaijan Erkan Ozoral Feb. 14.

Those projects will cover beekeeping, livestock, greenhouses and souvenir production. In particular, a bee farm, as well as a dairy farm with 150 head of cattle are planned to be created for 15 families. Moreover, 15 small greenhouses will be built and other projects will be implemented.

It should be noted that the Azerbaijani side tries to present Jojug Marjanli village as a "liberated" area during the April 2016 war. In fact, the village has never been under control of the Defense Army of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Previously, the Karabakh representatives already expressed the opinion that the Azerbaijani authorities could place military bases on the territory under the pretext of developing the village.
