Baku. Elbrus Seyfullayev-APA. "Turkish President Abdullah Gul's visit
to Armenia will be useful for Azerbaijan", said Turkish Ambassador
to Azerbaijan Hulusi Kilic in his exclusive interview to APA.

The ambassador said dialogue was always useful. Speaking about the
reaction of Azerbaijan to Gul's visit to Armenia, Kilic said everyone
might think differently.

The ambassador said Turkey put forward certain policy, which directed
not against, but for favor of Azerbaijan. The diplomat said the
Gul's visit wouldn't create problems in Azerbaijani-Turkish
relationship. "Those who wanted problem may create it, but
why? Azerbaijani officials are also meeting with the Armenian
officials. There is no problem in Turkish officials' meeting too. It
is only the match".

Kilic denied talks about opening the borders between Armenia and
Turkey. "Opening the borders is out of the question. It is impossible
to open borders until the solution of Nagorno Karabakh and other
problems".
