War Declared on Turkish Flags and Turkish Companies in Azerbaijan

It’s already been three days since they began to remove Turkish flags in Azerbaijan’s cities and regions. As reported by Azerbaijani paper Azadliq, the campaign began immediately after the signing of the Armenian-Turkish Protocols. The local leadership explains that a new law on flags has been implemented.

First, they removed not only the Turkish flags but also the metal flagstaffs at the memorial to those Turkish people who fell victim during the years of establishing Soviet authority. Then, last Friday, authorities made a decision to remove all the flags from in front of all offices and buildings belonging to Turkish companies in the country.

Azadliq reports that local governments were given these orders from higher-up administrative bodies. On the same day, checks began in Turkish companies in Azerbaijan.

But Azerbaijan’s anti-Turkey campaign isn’t limited to simply removing flags: as reported by Azadliq, the country’s leadership aims to cut off all its links with Turkey. It’s possible that those checks might lead to the termination of Turkish companies operating in Azerbaijan.
