his visit to Baku.

As AzerTag reports, Erdogan emphasized that very fruitful meetings were

touched on the Karabakh settlement, Erdogan said "Azerbaijan
always took constructive position in the negotiations and keeps on
maintaining this stance". According to the Turkish prime minister,
the fact that "Azerbaijan positively accepted new proposals by the
OSCE Minsk Group, but Armenia didn’t response to those proposals",
demonstrates Azerbaijan’s constructive approach to this issue.

Baku-Tbilisi- Kars railway to Nakhijevan, Erdogan said the work in
this direction is going on. "Let no one worry about it. Solution of
the problem of Nakhijevan is our primary goal. We shall start carriages

the opening ceremony. Turk Hava Yollar? Turkish Airlines will carry out
flights from Istanbul to Nakhijevan three times a week", Erdogan said.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
