Azerbaijan’s ambassador to Ankara said on Friday that Armenia and its lobby in the U.S. were instituting an opportunist foreign policy as they did not accede to opening their official historical archives to examination by historians.

Underlining the closeness between Turkey and Azerbaijan, Hazar Ibrahim said the two countries shared common foreign policies and would continue to support each other.

Arguing that Yerevan continually pushed for their own issues to pass through the U.S. congress whenever Turkey or Azerbaijan had a problem with the west, Ibrahim said: “This is not fair, this is not politics, it is opportunism.”
