Expert urges Armenia to benefit from Kurdish factor in Turkey

PanARMENIAN.Net - Provisions of Treaty of Sèvres related to Armenians and Kurds were the only ones that were not brought to life, Armenian political analyst said.

As Levon Shirinyan told a press conference, the Kurds attach great importance to the treaty in setting a goal to build their own statehood, and hope to get back the confiscated territories.

“The Turkish authorities and politicians still dub the treaty ‘a bur in the throat’,” the expert said, adding that Armenian must be ready to return Surmalu and Kars as minimum.

Mr. Shirinyan further stressed the need to develop good relations with the Kurds, due to their being a driving force for destabilizing the situation in Turkey.
