Azerbaijan, Baku, 26 April / corr Trend K.Ramazanova / Baku calls the firing of Azerbaijani and Turkish flags as brutality.
"These actions by Armenia show the world their true face," Araz Azimov, the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister, told journalists in Baku on 26 April.
Azimov said that Azerbaijan follows the laws and does not intend to take similar steps. "We witnessed such actions in the past," he said.
On 25 April the flags of Turkey and Azerbaijan were fired in Yerevan on 25 April during the ceremony dedicated to the victims of the so-called 'Armenian genocide'.
Armenia accuses Ankara of genocide of 1,500 Armenians in 1915-1917 during the Ottoman Empire. There are not any diplomatic relations between Armenian and Turkey, whereas the Armenian- Turkish border was closed in 1993 at Ankara's initiative.
Turkey rebuffs accusations by Armenia and confirms that during the inter-ethnic conflict, after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the last century, many Muslim Turks were killed along with Christian Armenians. The Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan offered to research the issue with the help of historical achieves of both countries, whilst Armenia did not favour it.Ankara's principle position on the issue states that in 1915 Armenians were internally displaced due to political interests of Ottoman Empire and that cannot be considered as genocide against the nation.
