Azerbaijani political scientist: Gul’s congratulation insulting for Turkey
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 21 / Trend S.Aghayeva /
Turkish President Abdullah Gul's congratulation to Serzh Sargsyan on his re-election is insulting for Turkey, Azerbaijani political scientist Vafa Guluzade believes.
"Serzh Sargsyan is Turkey's enemy. He accuses Turkey of the so-called "Armenian genocide" and makes territorial claims to the country. It is not clear why Abdullah Gul decided to be one of the first to congratulate Serzh Sargsyan on his re-election," political scientist told Trend on Thursday.
It is clear when Sargsyan congratulates Russian President Vladimir Putin - Armenia is a province of Russia. However, congratulations from President Gul to the president of the occupant country are impossible to understand, he said.
"It is known that Sargsyan has rigged elections in Armenia and is an enemy of democratic-minded people of the country. Does Gul support dictatorship in Armenia, by sending his greetings?" Guluzade said, noting that the mentioned congratulation may only be interpreted this way.
Turkey's President congratulated Serzh Sargsyan on his re-election as the head of Armenia.
