PanARMENIAN.Net - Artsakh President’s spokesman commented on the statement by Turkish President Abdullah Gul who voiced a wish to hold a Turkic Council summit in the Nagorno Karabakh.
“The move would be possible if Turkey recognized the NKR's independence and requested the Republic’s authorities to organize the summit. But if Turkey means to stir Azeri aggression, expressing readiness to support Baku in a war against Karabakh, the step is clearly unconstructive,” David Babayan told PanARMENIAN.Net
“The final declaration of the summit was much more reserved in terms of Karabakh conflict and was mainly addressed to Turkey and Azerbaijan. This spells Turkic countries’ unwillingness to be involved in Karabakh conflict as well as make it a pan-Turkic issue, contrary to Baku’s intention,” the official stressed.
As the Turkish President earlier said at a Gabala-hosted Third Turkic Council Summit Meeting, a day will come when we’ll hold a similar event in Karabakh.”
