Azerbaijan`s Ambassador to Jordan attends event commemorating Çanakkale battle victims

 Azerbaijani ambassador to Jordan Sabir Agabayov has participated in an event commemorating Çanakkale battle victims.
Organized by the Turkish embassy in Amman, the event was held at the Turkish Cemetery in Salt.
The ceremony brought together ambassadors of Pakistan, Australia, Kazakhstan, as well as military attachés of the diplomatic corps in Jordan, representatives of the Turkish and Jordanian communities.
More than 300 Turkish soldiers, who fell during battles against the British in World War I, are buried at the cemetery in Salt, in a mass grave first unveiled in 1973.
Afterwards, a memorial and museum were constructed on the site. In 2009, the museum next to the cemetery was opened by Turkish President Abdullah Gül during his official visit to Jordan. The museum includes pictures, artefacts and documents from the late Ottoman era.
