Cengiz Aktar is incorrect and misleading on numerous points in his article (“Turkey’s Armenian policy subcontracted to Azerbaijan?” Today’s Zaman, Tuesday, March 8, 2012, p. 15).
Usage of selective facts and memories, coupled with poor knowledge of world’s history, and a liberal agenda that opposes anything remotely “nationalistic” and favors kissing up to traditionally unfriendly nations, are probably to blame for Dr. Aktar’s stance (which contravenes the position of majority of Turks, according to all polls). On a more personal level, Dr. Aktar of course blames Azerbaijan, and its people, as well as all Turkish “nationalists” – who are, apparently, some 70% of the entire nation – for the flop of his insensitive, to put it mildly, campaign “Ozur diliyoruz” in 2008.
Turkish Parliamentary Foreign Relations Commission has issued on Wednesday a statement pertaining to the Khojaly massacre.

Turkish premier has called on France to quit as a member of a group aimed at securing a settlement to the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Upper Karabakh.
“France has clearly shown that it is a side [in the Upper Karabakh dispute] after adopting a law penalizing denial of Armenian allegations on Ottoman era incidents of 1915, which is why it has to step down from the Minsk Group,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan told an interview on the Azeri national TV network, ANS.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy meets Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian, who is on a three-day visit to France, home to one of Europe’s largest Armenian communities. Sarkozy expresses concern about lagging diplomacy between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, his office says
French President Nicolas Sarkozy expressed concern Wednesday about lagging diplomacy between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, his office said.

The French leader said he was concerned that a diplomatic process initiated about 18 months ago was losing steam, the spokesman said on condition of anonymity, citing government policy. Read the rest of this entry »
Armenian parliament’s speaker: Armenia not to debate protocols until Turkish parliament ratifies them
The National Assembly of Armenia (parliament) will not discuss the protocols on normalization of relations with Turkey unless they are ratified by Turkish parliament, Armenian parliament’s Speaker Ovik Abrahamyan said.
“Attempts to link Karabakh conflict settlement process with normalization of the Armenian-Turkish relations are ungrounded and unacceptable,” Hovik Abrahamyan said when commenting on yesterday’s statement by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. Read the rest of this entry »

There is more than the River Araxe separating the villages of Halikislak in Turkey and Bagaran in Armenia — a sealed border and a torrent of animosity divides their countries.
The 300 people in Halikislak and 700 in Bagaran are never allowed to meet. But hopes of an end to the isolation have been raised on both sides by an accord announced this week by the governments of Armenia and Turkey to move to end their century of hostility.
Memories of the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Armenians under the Ottoman Empire run deep between the countries even though the villages either side of the river have much in common. Read the rest of this entry »
