1072) Inal Batu: "Azerbaijan And Turkey Should Take Joint Action Against Armenian Impudence"

"The European Union countries have been making severe remarks regarding the sa-called 'Armenian genocide.'"

"This made both Turkish people and brotherly Azerbaijani people run out of patience. This is a systematized campaign which aims to make the Turkish people loose confidence in the European Union and its targets," Turkish diplomat, parliamentarian from the Republic People's Party Inal Batu told the APA.

The parliamentarian noted that politicians aim to take votes from electors benefiting from the groundless 'Armenian genocide.'

"They promised Turkey that it will be treated like other countries at the discussions. The European Union promised not to put additional demands for Turkey. However, they did not keep these promises. Europeans have realized that groundless claims of 'Armenian genocide' make us fury, and they focus on this issue on purpose," Mr.Batu said.

"France is leading in this process. What aim might a state official Jacques Chirac have by visiting Armenia? This visit shows how Chirac is far from feelings of justice and historic consciousness. The European Union keeps ignoring Armenia's occupying important parts of Azerbaijani territory leaving more than one million people to become displaced persons while it keeps on making groundless 'genocide' claims."

Turkish parliamentarian said the Turkish world faces an injustice bloc. "They are conducting a secret war against us ignoring the history. Regrettably, France which is taking pride in claiming to be the cradle of democracy and civilization is leading in this war. I wish the unfair campaigns against Turkey and Azerbaijan end as soon as possible."

He stressed Azerbaijan and Turkey should make joint efforts.

"We share the same language, religion, culture and history. We are two brotherly countries that have become target of Armenian injustice and charlatanism. US and European Union break new records every day regarding double standards. See the latest troubles that happened to Lebanon. I wonder whether the West will simply observe if Arab states attacked Israel. Or if Turk Cypriots dominated in Cyprus and Turks acted in the same way, what would the situation be. We face such standards of the West in our daily life. Now, there is 'clash of cultures.' Permanent support for Christians in Muslim-Christian conflicts strengthens hostility against Islam. Though Azerbaijan and Turkey are secular states, I must say our conditions are becoming more difficult. We suffer injustice due to bad approach towards Islam," he stressed.

Inal Batu have worked for Turkish Foreign Ministry for 40 years. His last diplomatic mission was to be Turkish ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador to Italy. He is a prominent diplomat and politician for defending Turkey's rightful position on the false 'Armenian genocide.'

Peaceful resolution of the Georgian-Russian crisis is a major task of the Armenian foreign policy at present, Armenian Deputy FM Arman Kirakosyan stated at South Caucasus 2006: Trends of Development, Threats and Risks international conference organized by Spectrum Center for Strategic Analysis. In his words, Armenia has normal relations with both countries. Kirakosyan hoped the crisis, which has a strong impact on the economy of the country, will be solved soon. «We hope the EU will help to overcome it within the ENP,» the Deputy FM said.

He also reminded that Azerbaijan's major goal is to isolate Armenia from the rest of the world. «GUAM pursues a short-sighted policy, which will do not good. Armenia, to the contrary, cooperates with countries of the region and international structures – this is the complementary foreign policy's actuality. As for cooperation with the EU, not membership in that organization, but democratic reforms are important for Armenia. Participation in the ENP will help overcome conflicts and differences in the region,» Kirakosyan underscored.
