11 out of the 15 Turkish journalists questioned spoke against the opening of the borders between Turkey and Armenia. It is reported in a news release of the Turkish-Azerbaijan Center of Media Researches. 6 of the 11 journalists speaking against the opening of the borders motivated their stand with the Armenians' demand to acknowledge the Armenian genocide in Ottoman Turkey. Four journalists argued their stand with Armenia's occupation of the Azerbaijan territory, one - with "social and economic reasons".
