ArmInfo. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Monday that
Turkey would never change its position "on Azerbaijani territories
occupied by Armenia."

Davutoglu said "saving Azerbaijani territories from occupation"
was one of the leading national matters for Turkey.

"Azerbaijani soil is as precious as Turkish soil," Davutoglu told a
joint press conference after his meeting with Czech Foreign Minister
and Deputy Prime Minister Jan Kohout.

Asked about his comments on hauling down of the Turkish flag in a
martyrdom in Azerbaijan, Davutoglu said Turkish and Azerbaijani flags
were both holy as flags of "a common nation."

"What we have been told was it was a temporary arrangement, a
measure for a restoration work," he said. "We have full confidence
in Azerbaijani people. We know their love to Turkey. We will never
allow attempts to cause discord between Turkey and Azerbaijan."
