According to Kilic, the commission includes representatives from more than 30 countries, and the investigation will begin in the coming days.
"The commission was created at the suggestion of the Deputy Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan, Firdovsi Aliyev, and the initiative of the head of the Association of Writers of the Turkic World, Salih Kurt, and the General Director of the Union of Scientists of Islamic States, Professor Bayram Altan,” he said.
