PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia's Acting Minister of Economy Vahan Kerobyan has said the opening of the border with Turkey is not on the table. Kerobyan said Thursday, April 29 that the country is going to extend the embargo on the import of Turkish-made products.
"We will most probably introduce a ban on the sale [of Turkish products] as well, regardless of when those goods have been imported to the country," Kerobyan said, according to Aysor.am.
"When a political decision is made to restore symmetrical relations, we will try to make sure that our economy is protected from being flooded with Turkish goods as much as possible."
Armenia first banned the import of Turkish products in 2020, in light of Turkey's overt military and political support for Azerbaijan during the latter's aggression against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).
