Answers of the MFA Spokesperson to the questions of araratnews.am website
Question: Aliyev has announced that the transfer of Zangezur district to Armenia led to a geographical split in the Turkic world. In his turn, the President of Turkey has stated that they will do their utmost to ensure the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. How would you comment on these statements?
Answer: At the 7th Summit of the Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States (Turkic Council) the President of Azerbaijan reiterated his encroachment on Armenia and its territories, this time combining them with Pan-Turkic elements.
Distorted perceptions of Azerbaijan and Turkey on regional security, based on racism and discrimination, impede peaceful resolutions to conflicts, create instability in the region and outside of it.
All of this underlines our priority to ensure the security of the Armenian people in the region.
Question: In his speech, the President of Turkey also noted that Turkey never in history committed massacres of civilians and will never do so.
Answer: This year, in his April 24 statement the Turkish President made an attempt to justify the genocide, committed against the Armenian people in their historic homeland. Hence, no statement by the President of Turkey on this subject is worthy of comment.
