On April 24, Speaker of the Milli Majlis Sahiba Gafarova had a telephone conversation with Speaker of the Turkish Grand National Assembly Mustafa Shantop.
VOİCEPRESS reports that this was reported by the Press and Public Relations Department of the Milli Majlis.
During a telephone conversation initiated by Sahiba Gafarova, the speakers of the parliaments of the fraternal countries condemned the statement made by the President of the United States Joe Biden in connection with the so-called “Armenian genocide”.
The chairman of the Milli Majlis said the statement was a historic mistake and unacceptable, and expressed hope that it would be reversed soon. The speaker of the parliament said that recently there have been hopes for peace and comprehensive cooperation between the countries of the region, and such statements have the potential to undermine these hopes.
Stating that the politicization of history is a very dangerous trend, the speaker stressed that Azerbaijan has always supported brotherly Turkey.
The brother thanked Sahiba Gafarova for her position and support. The Speaker of the Parliament said that this step taken by the US Administration was a big mistake and hoped that this mistake would be corrected as soon as possible.
At the end, the speakers exchanged views on the existing cooperation and inter-parliamentary relations between Azerbaijan and Turkey.
