Nalbandian accuses Cavusoglu of distorting reality

PanARMENIAN.Net - The process of normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations was launched with understanding that it should go on without preconditions, Armenia’s top diplomat said.

Slamming the statement by PACE President Mevlut Cavusoglu, who linked the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement with the Armenian-Turkish reconciliation, Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said, “All those present at the ceremony of signing of the protocols have numerously called for their ratification without preconditions.”

In 2009, Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Turkey, Edward Nalbandian and Ahmet Davutoglu, signed the protocols on establishment of diplomatic relations and opening of the common border, however no real steps followed to implement the protocols due to Turkey’s attempts to bring forth Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement as a precondition for normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations.
