The question of removing Turkish flag from the Martyr's Lane in Baku
was discussed at a meeting between Foreign Ministers Ahmet Davutoglu
of Turkey and Elmar Mammadyarov of Azerbaijan on Oct. 22 in Baku,
Trend News reported.

"We discussed it today and we hope that soon the Turkish flag will
wave in the Martyr's Lane," Davutoglu told reporters in Baku.

Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Mammadyarov said an investigation will
be held to identify those who insulted the flag of Azerbaijan during
a football match between Turkey and Armenia in Bursa.

Davutoglu said this step was a provocation aimed to instigate trouble
between the two peoples.

"Azerbaijan and Turkish flags are the same for us, we protect
Azerbaijani flag in Turkey, as you protect our martyrs here," said
Davutoglu.
