Albania vowed to Azerbaijan on Wednesday that it will take all measures not to allow its weapons sold into the countries in a state of conflict, after Turkey turned back an Albanian ship carrying weapons to Armenia.

"The Albanian government is determined to take all measures to ensure that its weapons will not be sold into the countries in conflict situations," Albanian Foreign Minister Lulezim Basha assured his Azerbaijan counterpart Elmar Mammadyerov in a phone conversation.

Last week at the Bosporus Turkey stopped and turned back an Albanian ship transporting heavy weaponry in 60 containers bound for Armenia, which denied it had bought weapons from Albania.

Armenia and Azerbaijan are at loggerheads over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, a mountainous region located within Azerbaijan. The region has claimed independence from Azerbaijan but has not been accepted internationally.

Azerbaijan's Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyerov has written to Albania and the Organization of Islamic Conference, saying that his country regards selling weapons to Armenia as an act against Azerbaijan.
