Two main avenues in Davulga municipality, Emirdag region, Eskisehir province, Turkey, have been named Qarabagh and Ganja.
A ceremony held on this occasion was attended by representatives of Davulga general public, Azerbaijanis living and working in Eskisehir, local residents of Qarabagh origin, representatives of non-governmental organizations and media.
In his opening remarks, head of Emirdag Culture and Arts Association Ahmet Urfali said the region was home to 15,000 people of Qarabagh origin. “They are playing an active role in the public and political life of Turkey.
