Prague meetings have registered a slight progress in NKR issue

PanARMENIAN.Net - On May 7 RA President Serzh Sargsyan met his Azeri colleague Abdullah Gul in Prague, within Eastern Partnership Summit framework.



"Armenian-Turkish negotiations have been launched in 2007. Negotiations focused on perspectives of Armenian-Turkish border opening as well as a number of regional issues," Sinan Ogan Head of TURKSAM Center for International Relations and Strategic Study told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. "Though negotiation details are nor divulged, nevertheless, it's no secret that parallel negotiations are conducted for normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations and NKR conflict settlement."



"Parallel negotiations are very important and we're glad that Armenian, Turkish and Azeri Presidents managed to achieve certain progress both in Armenian-Turkish relations and NKR issue. Despite statements on preconditions in Armenian-Turkish relations, bilateral ties and NKR issue are interrelated. It would be hard to imagine one process without another," he noted.



Dwelling on NKR issue perspectives, the expert stated, "Prague's meeting was surely important, but I believe that a real progress in NKR conflict settlement will be made in St. Petersburg."
