Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan Hulusi Kilich commented on Armenian foreign minister Edward Nalbandyan’s speech dealing with the Turkey’s condolences to Azerbaijani martyrs.
“It was inappropriate to compare Armenia with Azerbaijan” said the ambassador.
“There are 4 UN resolutions which condemn the occupation of Azerbaijani territories. Armenia must withdraw to its internationally recognized borders first of all and then it can give such kind of explanations. I don’t want to say more. Azerbaijani territories are under the occupation and the struggle for its liberation and retrieval will continue.”
Ambassador also mentioned that Turkey doesn’t want any human losses from Azerbaijani or Armenian side: “We support the peaceful solution to the conflict”.
Nalbandyan touched upon the Turkish condolence to Azerbaijan due to death of 5 soldiers during the prevention of the Armenian provocation in the frontline. He said that there were elements of racism in that statement and Turkey didn’t make such steps towards Armenia when it lost its soldiers.
The invader country’s minister said that Turkey was not objective and neutral in the problem of Nogorno Karabakh and it also damaged the solution process.
