Aznavour: I’ll visit Turkey if it opens border with Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Legendary chansonnier Charles Aznavour said he dreams of visiting Turkey once the latter opens the border with Armenia.

In interview with La Liberte newspaper, Aznavour noted that his Turkish friends have long been inviting him to Turkey.

“I will travel to Turkey if the latter agrees to open the border even without the settlement of the Armenian Genocide issue. The opening of the border will ease the souls of many people. Whenever I raise the Genocide issue, my relatives advice me not to go to Turkey, saying the trip will kill me,” the legendary singer said, adding that he gave a concert in Istanbul when he was just starting his career.
