It’s a known fact that during the soviet era the territory of the Armenian republic included 3 Azerbaijani exclaves (enclaves for Armenia), while Armenia’s Artsvashen exclave (see the map) was situated in the soviet republic of Azerbaijan. It’s also known that at the beginning of the 1990s all of the four enclaves ceased to exist as a result of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has completely destroyed his credibility by making numerous bizarre claims in recent years. For example, Erdogan told a group of Latin American Muslims visiting Istanbul last year that Muslim Pilgrims discovered America over 300 years before Christopher Columbus: “It is alleged that the American continent was discovered by Columbus in 1492. In fact, Muslim sailors reached the American continent 314 years before Columbus in 1178. …In his memoirs, Christopher Columbus mentions the existence of a mosque atop a hill on the coast of Cuba. A mosque would look perfect on that hill today.”
