Azerbaijan truths in Armenian sources
From the author:
These translation materials have been prepared on the basis of thought coming from the test of the centuries and consideration about the Azerbaijan Turks and studying Azerbaijan of the science and cultural figures of Armenian.

It’s true that, the language of Azerbaijan-Turks and its cultural-spiritual heritable is more ancient than the Armenian language, and it’s impossible to compare these facts. The strength of Azerbaijan spiritual culture, objective and logical consideration, articles, confesses have been collected in this material. Today addressing to them is the most important matter for modern situation and explained some misunderstandings.
The confessions of the Armenians, unable to withstand the historical truths at different times once again unveil who they are:
If today Armenians have something in the field of literature, all it was obtained thanks to being neighbors to Turkic peoples, in particular, to the Azerbaijani Turks. In the present case the field of poetry is no exception. Gukasyan, Armenian author, as well as academician M. Abegyan’s such idea confirms that in the early Middle Ages Armenian poetry the rhymed verse came under the influence of Azerbaijan and other Turkic languages. These ideas can be applied to the sphere of art. Thus, the Armenian-born academic Marr has written about achievement of Armenians specific development culturally under the influence of other nations: "Ani’s Armenian art developed highly not during Armenian kings but after the collapse of the Armenian state."
