Turkish President Abdullah Gul said Wednesday that a possible accord to normalize ties between Turkey and Armenia would benefit Azerbaijan. Speaking in Prague after meeting Czech President Vaclav Klaus, Gul added that a reconciliation would stabilize the entire Caucasus region. Azerbaijan is disturbed by Turkey's and Armenia's recent efforts toward reconciliation, which could lead to the reopening of their joint border. Turkey closed the border in a show of support to Azerbaijan, which is in conflict with Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Turkey said last week the two countries bitterly divided over Ottoman-era killings of ethnic Armenians agreed on a roadmap for normalizing relations and reaching reconciliation.
