Normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations unlikely in foreseeable future

PanARMENIAN.Net - I wouldn't say that normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations possible in the foreseeable future, chairman of Mitq analytical center, historian Eduard Abrahamyan said in an interview with PanARMENIAN.Net

"The fact is that Turkic solidarity is gaining weight. Turkey is not interested in independence and uncontrollable Armenia. During the soviet era, Ankara was trying to weaken Russia's influence and cement the Turkic bloc and Islamic fundamentalism," he said.

"As to Georgia, it has to put up with the economic expansion of Turkey, which under supervision of its Western allies keeps on developing various scenarios of so-called Turkish projects where Armenia is perceived as a temporal political entity, completely yielding to Azerbaijan."

"However, despite political confrontation, I can't rule out official economic ties between the two states, especially because informal economic contacts has existed and developed since Armenia proclaimed independence," the expert said.
