Head of OSCE Group in Turkish parliament: "Azerbaijan should be ready for fight"

"I am obliged to note that Minsk group is one of the most incompetent organizations in international mediating. Surely, it is not easy to solve the problem between Armenia and Azerbaijan. But it is not chaotic.

"Because Azerbaijani lands underwent invasion by another country. Armenians invaded Turkish land Karabakh with the support of other countries. The problem is immediate and unconditional liberation of the lands. The position of the Minsk Group is nothing but compromise the invader," the head of OSCE Group of Turkish Parliament, one of the leading members of Justice and Development Party Professor Nevzat Yalchintash told the APA.

"If you do not want your lands to be occupied and wish peace, be ready for fight. Azerbaijan should be ready to protect its lands. All necessary steps should be taken. Of course Azerbaijan can prefer peaceful solution to the conflict. You know that I was first vice-president of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly. I am the head of OSCE Group in the Turkish parliament. OSCE is the second great organization after the UN and its main aim is to solve the conflicts peacefully. But if the problem is not solved peacefully, Azerbaijan should be ready for everything," he said.

Taking a stance on not signing security agreement between Azerbaijan and Turkey, Yalchintash said he does not know the reason but it should be signed. He also added that this agreement exists in the hearts.

"It is in our blood and heart. Turkey can not hesitate in the protection of Azerbaijan. Turkey intervened in Cyprus with army. Those who want to see this example in Azerbaijan should visit Shamakhi. They will see the graves of their Turkish brothers there. When Ottoman Empire collapsed we went to help Azerbaijan, we see no difference between Anadolu and Azerbaijan. This sign is on the graves of martyrs in Shamakhi," he said.
