The Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan in interview for Turkish NTV channel made some interesting admissions on Armenian-Turkish relations and Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The most eloquent of them is Erdogan's confession that foreign policy of Turkey to a large extent determined by the conditions (read - requirements) of Azerbaijan. Thus, on the question of NTV channel journalist "Is Karabakh - Turkish condition?”, Erdogan replied: "This is not our condition. This is Azerbaijan’s condition.

In my recent article ("One nation - different problems”) I defined Ahmed Davutoglu (Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey) words, quoted by APA Azerbaijani news Agency as nonsense. I was convinced that Minister could not say: "one of the main targets of Zurich protocols was the release of Azerbaijani land from the "occupation” (the quotes are ours - L.M.-Sh.). To prove absurdity of it let’s recall, that Azerbaijan is not mentioned in Zurich protocols at all. As to confirm my beliefs Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey on its official site reported that Davutoglu didn’t give any interviews to APA Agency and therefore he couldn’t say this or any other absurdities.

Azerbaijani website published long article (in 2 parts) of certain Gasan Tatoglu from Vienna, where the author, as he wrote, attempted to understand the Armenian point of view on Khojaly’s (Agdam’s L. M.-Sh.) tragedy. This desire of course if commendable, and Azerbaijani side long ago had to calmly and unbiased understand facts. However, Tatoglu didn’t succeed on "calmly understanding”, throughout the article author tried to refute published facts and Armenian side’s arguments about Agdam’s tragedy. After all, the author very clumsily shifts the accent on the internal politics vicissitudes of Republic of Armenia. Allah with him, it’s not worth while to expect more from the resident of Vienna with suddenly awakened patriotism.

Two Azerbaijani officials, Tofic and Akhmed meet each other:
Listen, Akhmed, – says Tofic, – lately (recently) I started liking women. Does it mean that I’m a lesbian?

This is a typical Azerbaijani joke (which, by the way, boarders on truth) – a litmus paper of Azerbaijani "elite”. It’s impossible to meet such an exact and capacious self-estimation in any other country. Eventually, during many centuries people had and now have harems. And the sex of inhabitants of seraglio is no longer important. The importance is that the Azerbaijani "elite” owing to their customs keep operating in the spirit of co ... Read more »
