Turkey dispatched a shipment of mine clearing equipment to Azerbaijan on Thursday.

The Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Twitter that an air force cargo plane had departed for the Azerbaijani capital Baku with 20 units of mechanical minesweeping equipment.

It took off from the central province of Kayseri carrying the Turkish-made equipment produced by state-run defense firm ASFAT.
