Armenia’s airport move is not friendly, says Turkish FM
BAKU - Anatolia News Agency
Armenia’s move to resume flights to Khojaly Airport in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region will damage the solution process with Azerbaijan, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said today at a press conference in Baku.
“If the airport is opened, this will damage the solution process,” Davutoğlu said, adding that everyone should focus on a solution to the issue.
Armenia’s step was not friendly, Davutoğlu said, adding that Turkey had been in solidarity with Azerbaijan on the question of the airport as well as other issues.
Turkey was ready to do everything to establish peace and stability in the south Caucasus, the foreign minister said.
“Everyone should respect all countries’ borders to maintain peace,” Davutoğlu was quoted as saying.
Turkey wants the problem of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity to be solved, Davutoğlu said.
