YEREVAN, October 11. / ARKA /. A spokesman for Armenia’s foreign ministry Tigran Balayan has commented on a statement by Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu about the prospects of normalization of relations with Armenia.
On Thursday Davutoglu said that the Turkish side wishes to propose new creative ideas aimed at the normalization of the Armenian-Turkish relations. He also said that Turkey attaches special importance to normalization of this relationship, but added it would be possible only after ‘liberation of Azerbaijani lands.’
Tigran Balayan said, “Four years have passed since the signing of the protocols and during that period we have been hearing the same old song from the Turkish side on some creative ideas. These are nothing else than continuation of efforts to hide Turkey’s failure of the ratification and implementation process of the protocols without any preconditions, something expected by the international community.” -0-
