Azerbaijan Ayna, August 8, 2008
Adnan Oktar: The latest developments point to this. For example, Turkey’s amalgamation with Azerbaijan first and foremost is a most vital matter and this may happen in the next few weeks or months, or within this year... Our everything is the same. Dividing Azerbaijan from Turkey is like dividing Ankara from Istanbul. There is no difference between them. The one is as logical as the other, or as illogical as the other. If Turkey were to openly make an official proposal the reply from Azerbaijan would come within 24 hours, and all they need to do is say the words. I do not think anyone would be uneasy over it.
Iran Al Alam, September 23, 2008
Adnan Oktar: A Turkish-Islamic Union will be established under Turkish leadership within 10 years. Come and see me if it does not eventually happen as I said. But Turkey and the Turkish nation will be at its head, I state that openly and provide details of it. Azerbaijan will amalgamate with Turkey, they will come together as two states, one nation. Syria will unite with Turkey in the near future. Iraq and Turkey will unite in the near future and there will be a chain of such events. The Caucasian Union project will also come about. That is also part of the Turkish-Islamic Union... There is no other path at the moment. There appears to be no other path for Islamic countries and Turkey than the Turkish-Islamic Union. This is destined by Allah... There is a right time for everything, a blessed time, and that blessed time has come, and these things will come to be, insha’Allah.

A report on STRATFOR, a leading publisher of geopolitical intelligence, said, “If there is a country in the former Soviet Union that would consider not only allying with but actually joining with another state to escape Russia’s orbit, it would be Azerbaijan with Turkey.”
