ArmInfo. The further prospects of Turkey as a state lie either in its collapse or in the seizure of new territories in order to "dissolve" the Kurds in the Turkic world. A similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfopolitologist Stepan Danielyan.
"Already today Turkey has faced a demographic crisis. Moreover, this crisis is caused not by insufficient natural population growth of the country, but by the fact that this growth is mainly provided by Kurds. Moreover, the population of conditional Kurdistan is growing not only numerically, its geography is spreading. In other words, there are more and more Kurds in the territories where previously their number was very small, "he stressed.
According to the political scientist, the Turkish president Erdogan, having voiced several years ago that Turkey had demographic problems and urged Turkish mothers to give birth more, had in mind the Kurdish problem. In Danielyan's view, time is working against the territorial integrity of Turkey today, and no solutions to this problem can be seen.
"It is in this light that I consider Erdogan's Baku statements about" one nation, six states. "In this light, Ilham Aliyev's statements about" Zangezur dividing the Turkic world "must be considered. By and large, the territory of Armenia is not an obstacle as much on the road to the Turkic dream, how much is the problem of saving Turkey from the Kurds and the disappointing prospects associated with them, "the political scientist concluded.
On October 15, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev voiced claims on the territory of Armenia during the Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States in Baku. "Nakhchivan is separated from mainland Azerbaijan. Zangezur, an ancient Azerbaijani land, is located between them. Its transfer to Armenia created a geographical split in the Turkic world," Aliyev said.
The spokeswoman for the Armenian Foreign Ministry, Anna Naghdalyano, characterized these statements by Aliyev as yet another claim to the territory of Armenia, this time focusing on pan-Turkism. "The distorted views of Azerbaijan and Turkey on regional security, based on racism and discrimination, impede the peaceful resolution of conflicts and contribute to the creation of instability in the region and beyond. All this makes the priority of ensuring the security of the Armenian people obvious," Naghdalyan said.
