A video showing Azeri people waving the national flags of Pakistan and Turkey in the streets of Azerbaijan went viral on social media last week. 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.
The short-video clip was apparently shot from a nearby home. The people travelling in the car waved flags of both the countries to express love for them. Pakistan and Turkey have voiced strong support to Azerbaijan in its ongoing conflict with Armenia.
Similar pictures of Azeri people expressing love for Pakistan have been circulating on social media since last month.

Earlier this month, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev had thanked the government of Pakistan for expressing solidarity with his country during its deadly tiff with Armenia.
In a viral video, the president lauded Pakistan for proclaiming support for the country against Armenian aggression.
“A meaningful support coming from brotherly countries is crucial for Azerbaijan to defend itself and fight the case against Armenia globally,” he said. He expressed these views while meeting the newly appointed Ambassador of Pakistan, Bilal Hayee, to Azerbaijan.
Images of people of Azerbaijan putting up flags of Turkey and Pakistan in the balconies of their homes went viral on social media last month.
An Azeri Twitter user had posted the screenshots of messages of solidarity she received from Pakistani Twitter users. Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Pakistan, Ali Alizada, last month shared the videos of Pakistani flags being raised with flags of Turkey and Azerbaijan in the streets of district Tovuz- the battleground of Armenia and Azerbaijan
