I cannot say when the mosque will be opened.Most likely it will not happen”, counselor of Turkish embassy in Azerbaijan for religious affairs Muzaffer Shahin told APA. The embassy official said the mosque was closed for repair works and it had not been opened yet, but there was an opportunity to pray there. “It seems we cannot hope for its opening. There are persons in Azerbaijan responsible for this issue. We have no authority to make decision to re-open the mosque”.

Shahin said there was no problem for the activity of other Turkish mosques in Azerbaijan.

Department chief of the State Committee on Religious Affairs Gunduz Ismayilov told APA the religious communities are refreshing their registration in Azerbaijan. “The communities are registered in the mosques. The issue of Martyrs Mosque will be reviewed after the ending of refreshing the registration”.
