Presentation of Ighdir city as a “Western Armenia’s” city by “Western Armenian TV” channel functioning in Armenia has aroused discontent in Turkey, local bureau of APA reports citing “Hurriyet” newspaper.

Sardar Unsal, Deputy Chairman of Turkey-Azerbaijan Friendship Groupsç Chairman of Ighdir Azerbaijani House Group stated that İghdir is a Turkish city and its belonging to “Western Armenia” is impossible.

“The Armenians were the enemies of Turks show at any opportunity that they had set their bag for Turkish lands for many years. The Irevan city where they live currently, is also a Turkish land, a part of Western Azerbaijan”, - S. Unsal stressed.  

The head of a Turkish Association that Struggles Against International Baseless Armenian Lies (ASIMDER) Goksel Gulbey noted that allowing the broadcast of TV that shows nearly 20 cities located in Eastern and Southern- Eastern Anatolia alongside with Ighdir as “Western Armenia”, the state of Armenia has openly forwarded territorial claim on Turkish lands.

He noted that this movement that has been started by grandchildren of Armenian families, living in Europe, deported from the Ottoman Empire in 1915 is supported by France and Armenia.

G. Gulbey stressed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey should send a note to Armenia regarding this issue.
