TURKISH AND AZERBAIJANI DIASPORA IN EUROPE AGAINST OPENING OF BORDERS WITH ARMENIA

Baku, 25 (AZERTAC). Representatives of the Coordination Council of the Azerbaijani and Turkish Diaspora Organizations consider it incorrect to open borders with Armenia without the settlement of the Karabakh conflict.

By results of a joint sitting of the Congress of Azerbaijanis of Europe and the Coordination Council of the Azerbaijani and Turkish Diaspora organizations in Frankfurt, the participants drew up an appeal to Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Turkish President Abdullah Gul.

According to the Hurriyet newspaper, the appeal says that the Azerbaijani and Turkish people are close to each other and they have always adhered to single positions.

“We, the representatives of the Coordination Council of the Azerbaijani and Turkish Diaspora organizations, consider it incorrect to open the border between Turkey and Armenia without the settlement of the Karabakh conflict. We also oppose the protocols on normalization of ties signed between Turkey and Armenia, because Armenia continues putting territorial claims to Azerbaijan and Turkey. We, the Turkish diaspora of Europe, ask the leaders of the two fraternal countries to make everything possible to preserve these relations for future generations,” the appeal says.
