Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.
Azerbaijani media and society know well the position of Turkey on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and Armenia. However, Turkish ambassadors to Azerbaijan have announced their positions on this up to now. The Turkish President, Prime Minister, officials and the Speaker of the Parliament have clearly announced
their position on this issue. Flights from Yerevan to Turkey are operated by private companies. As media reports, these are commercial flights. Private companies have no problems in Turkey in carrying out these activities," said Turkish ambassador to Azerbaijan Ismayil Alper Coskun while commenting on Azerbaijani media reports on launching of Yerevan-Van flight, APA reports.
Ambassador said that it is not right to issue statements that commercial flights will change Turkey's position on Nagorno Karabakh.
"No country supports Azerbaijan's position on Nagorno Karabakh conflict more than Turkey, which has closed its borders with Armenia. I ask media also to highlight Turkey's positive steps, not to confuse the people. There is nothing to worry. Turkey's position on Karabakh problem, Armenia has not changed," he said. The flights will be made twice in a week, with the two-way ticket to cost $250.
