Azerbaijan, Baku, April 13 / Trend , J. Babayeva/
As many as 18,304 people have joined "Not open Turkey-Armenia border" signature campaign.
An appeal will be made to President, Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and other Turkish official on April 14 after signatures reach 20,000, Congress of World Azerbaijanis Board member and organizer of the campaign Asif Gurbanov told Trend earlier.
The "Not open Turkey-Armenia border" signature campaign was launched on April 7 at www.turkiye-ermenistan-kapilar-acilmasin.org. website.
Different circles in Turkey claim Turkey-Armenia borders will be opened.
Armenian-Turkish ties have been severed since 1993 due to Armenia's claims of an alleged genocide, and the country's occupation of 20 percent of Azerbaijani lands.
Turkish President Abdullah Gul visited Yerevan on Sept. 6, 2008 upon the invitation of his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan to watch an Armenia-Turkey football match.
Efforts have been made to normalize ties between the two countries ever since.
