Minister: Azerbaijan is proud of Turkey’s strengthening
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 9 / Trend, A.Taghiyeva /
Not only Turks, but also our brothers in Azerbaijan, Crimea, and Bosnia are proud of strengthening of Turkey, Turkish media outlets quotes the country's Minister for EU Affairs Egemen Bagis.
"Turkey's successes are successes of all Muslim nations and all peoples of the region," Bagis said.
He also commented on the statement made by Slovakian Supreme Court Chairman Stefan Harabin, who said if any Turkish senior official denies the "Armenian genocide" in Slovakia, he will be immediately punished.
"It would be worth for this Slovakian official to look at the reality, rather than deal with distortion of history," Bagis said.
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that the predecessor of the Turkey - Ottoman Empire had committed the 1915 genocide against the Armenians living in Anadolu, and achieved recognition of the "Armenian Genocide" by the parliaments of several countries.
