Azerbaijan on Thursday held a large-scale military parade in Baku, which the country said was held to mark its "victory" against Armenia in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Along with President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan also attended the parade.

It came days after the Armenian side said the country will hold negotiations with Azerbaijan.

The negotiations will likely take place this year under Russian mediation, according to Armenia Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan.

On November 9, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a joint statement, agreeing to a complete ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh.
