Demand for Pakistani flags have spiked in Azerbaijan amid its conflict with Armenia, said Azeri Ambassador to Pakistan, Ali Alizada on Monday. Alizada in a tweet commented that Pakistan and Azerbaijan enjoy brotherly relations for decades.

“Love to #Pakistan & #Turkey is boundless in #Azerbaijan, and requirements for Pakistani flag are also increased,” said the ambassador in a tweet. He also thanked Pakistan and Azerbaijan for voicing unequivocal support for Azerbaijan in its ongoing tiff with Armenia.

 

A video showing Azeri people waving the national flags of Pakistan and Turkey in the streets of Azerbaijan went viral on social media, earlier this month. The video showed three cars crossing a road in an unidentified city of Azerbaijan, as the people inside the cars waved the flags of Turkey and Pakistan.
