"There are opponents and supporters of Turkish President's visit to Armenia," Head of the Working Group, MP Nizami Jafarov said, adding that relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan will not change. 

"The development of events shows that Turkish President has made a tactical move. This does not change attitude towards Azerbaijan. Our country will not change its attitude towards Turkey either.
