A top Azeri delegation headed by President Ilham Aliyev will arrive in Turkey on Tuesday to attend the July 13 ceremony of inaugurating the Turkish section of Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, the main export pipeline taking Caspian oil to international markets, officials say.

"This event is of great importance for our country and regional states. The Azerbaijani President will be therefore accompanied by a large delegation and media representatives," the head of the President's Office international relations department, Novruz Mammadov, told journalists.

According to AssA-Irada, Mammadov said the ceremonies of transporting Azeri oil from the Ceyhan port will be organized in several cities of Turkey.
