Ankara, Turkey – MHP leader Devlet Bahceli said: “as Armenian gangs are stuck in front of Azerbaijan, they are expanding the areas of conflict to civilian settlements. The Armenian massacre mentality is repeating the same thing today as it did in the past. Armenia is cruel, murderous, must drown in the blood it spills.”the participation of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic in the Republic of Azerbaijan is essential, it is a historical necessity, it is a very urgent need, so to speak, it is a matter of life and death., “he said.
Bahçeli, in a statement, reacted to Armenia’s attack on Ganja, one of the largest cities in Azerbaijan.

“Armenia’s despicable attack on Ganja, one of the largest cities in Azerbaijan, and its targeting of our civilian and innocent descendants is a crime of humanity, a clear violation and denial of international law. The Armenian state has once again shown its persecuted face. In addition, the settlements of Fuzuli, Agdam and Terter in Nagorno-Karabakh were also bombed by Armenia with artillery and rocket fire. As Armenian mobs get stuck in the face of Azerbaijan, they expand the areas of conflict into civilian settlements. The Armenian massacre mentality is repeating the same thing today as it did in the past. Armenia is cruel, cruel, must drown in the blood it spills. Armenia is the only opposition to peace and stability in the South Caucasus. Now the international community must not be insensitive to bloody and vile attacks on civilians. On this occasion, I say mercy from Allah to our descendants who were martyred, and healing to our wounded descendants,” he said.

Bahçeli emphasized that Nagorno-Karabakh is the birthplace of Azerbaijani Turkishness, an indispensable right, he said:

“It must be ensured that this right meets the rightful owner, albeit at the cost of life. I curse Armenia with hatred, a state of murder and terror. I believe that the head of the snake will definitely be crushed. In the face of these developments, the accession of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic to the Republic of Azerbaijan is essential, it is a historical necessity, it is a very urgent need, so to speak, it is a matter of life and death. As a result of the merger in question, one voice, one breath, one heart will be fought against the oppressor and the enemy. In this way, Azerbaijan’s right, legal, legitimate and survival struggle will gain even more strength and depth. We are not separated, we are not far, we are not close, we are two states, We are one nation, we are blood flowing in the same vein, we are life beating on the same skin. We are one, we are together, we are Turkey and Azerbaijan. And together we are the Great Turkish nation.”
