Ankara - APA. `Turkey is concerned about the current state of Nagorno
Karabakh conflict and wishes the problem to be solved in a short
period of time,' President of Turkey Abdullah Gul said in an
interview to the Director General of ITAR-TASS Mikhail Gusman.

He expressed his regret that that the conflict remained frozen.
"Nagorno Karabakh is still under occupation. Millions of our
Azerbaijani brothers have been displaced as a result of the conflict
and live in bad conditions. We wish the problem between Azerbaijan
and Armenia to be solved through understanding and dialogue.
Everybody is engaged in the settlement of Cyprus problem, while no
one concerns himself with Nagorno Karabakh. We regret it,' the
president said.
