Baku – APA. Turkey’s state agencies have suspended the publication of local newspaper Kurultay (kurultay.com.tr), known for its anti-Azerbaijani position, sources in Turkey told APA on Wednesday.


Moreover, the press card of the editor-in-chief of Kurultay newspaper, Aydın Taş, who is also a RFE/RL representative to Ankara, has also been revoked, according to the sources.


The sources noted that the e-newspaper was suspended from publication due to dissemination of false and biased information about the state and people of Azerbaijan.  


According to the sources, the Turkish state agencies have begun to take severe measures against such anti-Azerbaijani media outlets and journalists that are controlled and backed by the Armenian diaspora and some foreign circles. Some of them have already been warned in this regard.


Ali Hasanov, Azerbaijani president’s aide for public and political affairs, has recently paid a visit to Turkey, discussing with the country’s officials domestic political developments as well as ways of countering foreign-backed groups that work against the two countries. The actions taken to crush the anti-Azerbaijan network operating in Turkey seem to be producing results.
