Envoy says Turkey wants Upper Karabakh solution soon
Turkey wants the problem about Upper Karabakh to be solved through peaceful methods and within the scope of international law, Turkey's Ambassador said.

"Turkey has been waiting for the problem to be solved for 15 years. It does not have the patience to wait for another 15 years," Turkey's Ambassador to Baku Hulusi Kilic said at a press conference at the Turkish Embassy in Baku while assessing relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan in 2008.

Kilic said Turkey advocated Azerbaijan's territorial integrity and rightful stance of Azerbaijan on the matter, noting, "Upper Karabakh problem should be solved soon and occupation should end."

Commenting on economic relations and various projects between Turkey and Azerbaijan, Kilic said, "relations between the two parties are at satisfactory level."

Kilic described "Baku-Tbilisi-Kars" project, which will enable direct railway transportation with Turkey, as "the project of the era", adding that construction would end in 2010.

Kilic also said Parliamentary Assembly meeting of Turkish Speaking countries would hold its first meeting in September in Baku.
