The Governor of the Turkish Province of Kars, Mehmet Ufuk Erden, briefed representatives of the Azerbaijani media that the question of opening Turkish-Armenian borders may be resolved at state level, a Trend Special Correspondent reports.
Commenting on the possibility of opening Turkish-Armenian borders in Kars, the Governor stressed that there are no changes in this direction. According to him, the borders with Armenia have been closed since 1993. We cannot change the policy of the state, Erden said.
He added that the question of so-called Armenian genocide should not be on the agenda, but should be studied by historians. The Governor stated that mass assassination of Turks was committed by Armenians in the east of Turkey at the beginning of the last century. Such graves were discovered by historians and archaeologists in the recent past in Kars itself, and in particular the dead bodies of 512 Turks have been discovered in one of such grave.
