Armenia not against Turkey's EU membership

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia is not against Turkey's becoming an EU member. Acceding to the Union, Turkey will become more predictable and secure, President Serzh Sargsyan said in Yerevan, during a joint communique with his Cypriot Colleague Demetris Christofias. "By Turkey's becoming an EU member, Armenia will have a direct border with the Union," RA President noted.



Demetris Christofias noted in his turn that his country shared Armenia's views on the issue, "We want to see Turkey inside EU. Turkey's big market is not a guarantee for EU membership. Ankara should first of all comply with all the terms of membership and respect European principles and values, as well as cease the occupation of Southern part of Cyprus, open all airports and harbors," Cyprus President said.
