Baku. Elnur Mammadli – APA. “Our official attitude towards the normalization of Turkey-Armenia relations is obvious. We have stated several times that every state determines relations with its neighbors itself. But at the same time saying “every state” the relations between Azerbaijan and Turkey are beyond this framework,” Vice-Speaker of Azerbaijani Parliament Bahar Muradova said, APA reports. Muradova said Azerbaijan-Turkey relations are quite different and underlined that she does not want to believe that the friendly country will take a step contradicting Azerbaijan’s interests.
“We want to believe that Turkey will never damage Azerbaijan’s interests while normalizing its relations with Armenia and will take this action within the implementation of the stipulations laid when the borders were closed with Armenia,” she said.

As regards Azerbaijan’s official protest against Turkey, Bahar Muradova said it is not time to express protest.
“Though Azerbaijani officials and public are concerned, they have not lost their confidence that Turkey will protect Azerbaijan’s interests in the relations with Armenia. I think they will take our position into consideration. Anyway, our position is obvious,” she said.
