Deputy Prime Minister Yilmaz Speaks About Karabagh

ANKARA (Anadolu News Agency)–Addressing ANAP’s parliamentary group meeting–Deputy Prime Minister Mesut Yilmaz–leader of the Motherland Party (ANAP)–said ”we have remained a mere spectator against Armenia’s occupation by ignoring the upper Karabakh dispute.”

Yilmaz added–”works to refute the allegations on the so-called genocide on Armenia’s were successful before 1980–but we could not maintain the same system. It is necessary to evaluate all matters about Armenia as a whole. We could not take steps to solve the dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia. We have been ignoring the fact that separatists in Turkey have considered upper Karabakh a new base as we have been careless about the misery of refugees who were forced to leave their homes in upper Karabakh.”

He also said ”judgmen’s regarding history should be made by scientists not by politicians or parliamentarians.”
