Protocols' provision on sub-commissions is Turkey's attempt to save face

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia is concerned over two issues in the Armenian-Turkish reconciliation process. These are formation of sub-commission and the border, said Hayk Demoyan, director of Armenian Genocide Museum Institute.

"At that, the provision on sub-commissions is nothing but Turkey's attempt to save face. It's important that specialists will have access to the documents on legal proceeding against instigators of the Armenian Genocide. These archives have been closed not only for Armenian but also for Turkish experts," he said.

Mr. Demoyan also underscored that the sub-commission should include international law experts.

"Another important issue is the Armenian-Turkish border. The two countries are separated by a frontier line not recognized by a bilateral agreement," he said.

"If sides sign a bilateral agreement, the Treaty of Kars will be denounced. The existing dividing line can be regarded as a temporary border unless the specialists draw a conclusion," Mr. Demoyan said, reminding that Armenia and Georgia have diplomatic relations but a border agreement between them has not been sealed yet.
