Russia won't allow Turkey's mediation in Karabakh process

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia will hardly trust Turkey, a pro-Azeri country, as a mediator in the Karabakh process, Svante Cornell, research director of the Stockholm Central Asia-Caucasus Institute, told a PanARMENIAN.Net when commenting on Turkish President Gul's intention to mediate tensions between the Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders.



"Besides, Russia, the Co-chair in the OSCE Minsk Group, wants to maintain the format and will hardly allow Turkey into the process," he said.



Earlier, Gul said he intends to mediate tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan.



"I have enlisted support of my Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan to arrange the meeting. And I am hopeful to receive consent from Azerbaijan's Ilham Aliyev. I will meet with him soon to discuss the details and will brief on the outcomes of my visit to Armenia," he said.



Today he said that the OSCE Minsk Group failed to produce effect during 17 years of its mediation.



The Turkey-Armenia and Azerbaijan-Armenia issues are not only bilateral but also territorial, according to him.



"The situation in the region has changed. Resolution of conflicts will lead to political and economic stability," Gul said.
