On the initiative of independent TV company ANS, a group of leading
Azerbaijani journalists left for Turkey this morning to stage a
protest action on the Armenian-Turkish border under the banners:
“Turks must support Turks” and “No to the opening of borders”.

Let us remind you that the action will be launched in the towns of
Kars and Igdir near the border and continue in numerous populated
areas. The protest action will end in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

The action by the well-known Azerbaijani journalists will aim to urge
Ankara not to yield to pressure on the issue. They will explain to the
people the consequences of such a step for the region. The journalists
and the local population will create a human chain of goodwill.
