If Turkey accepts the EU conditions, it will have to deny its history and national spirit Azeri political scientist
Even if Turkey accepts the EU conditions, it will not join this organization, said MP and political scientist Aydin Mirzadzadeh, member of Poliutical Council with New Azerbaijan Party.
Representatives of main political groups within European parliament said in case Turkey recognizes so-called Armenian genocide and opens its border with Armenia, the country ill be le join the EU. Among these conditions is recognition of Cyprus and resolution of Kurd problem.
MP said Armenian genocide recognition may not e the condition of affiliation. This shall be the matter of discussion among historians only. В"The same might be said of the border opening. This is an internal affair of the stateВ", Mirzazadeh said.
Mirzazadeh said he doubts Turkey would accept such conditions. В"Accepting such conditions implies Turkey denying its history and national spirit. Turkey will have to beg its pardons to Armenians. To make mattes worse, if Turkey opens its border with Armenia, Azerbaijan will remain face-to-face with Nagorno-Karabakh and thus Ankara will have to break up with Baku, which will consequently harm Turkey on South CaucasusВ", said the scientist, adding Turkish government will never agreed to that.
