"We do not have any discrepancies with Azerbaijan. Taking advantage
of every opportunity, I reiterate that we consider problems of our
Azerbaijani brothers as our own ones," said Turkish Prime Minister
Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a TV address to the nation.

Turkish Premier noted Turkey wants the Nagorno-Karabakh problem be
resolved through a dialogue.

He said since the beginning the process of rapprochement between
Turkey and Armenia "we have regarded Azerbaijan`s interests as our
own interests".

Erdogan expressed regret that there are people who want to turn both
countries against each other.

He stressed the need for historians to study the problems between
Turks and Armenians.
