ELDENIZ GULIYEV: "TURKEY LOSES MUCH MORE FROM STRENGTHENING RELATIONS WITH ARMENIA"
Dec 29 2008
"The strengthening of relations between Turkey and Armenia is of
negative nature", said chairman of the Azerbaijan Intellectuals
Movement Eldeniz Guliyev.
He said strengthening of relations between the countries should be
considered from various positions.
"First of all, Turkey must not forget the historical facts and the
evil Armenia brought to it. Second, it must bear in mind that 20%
of Azerbaijani lands are occupied.
Naturally, each country pursues its goal while strengthening the
relations. In particular, the opening of borders is profitable for
Armenia, while Turkey tends to join EU. However, both countries should
not forget that the things they achieve will be insignificant against
what they lose. Turkey loses much more by strengthening relations
with Armenia", noted he.
Guliyev also added that the campaign held by representatives of
Turkish intellectuals by apologizing to Armenians for 1915 events in
the Osman Empire and the reverse campaign were planned incompetently
