Ankara synchronizes the Armenian-Turkish process with the Armenian-Azerbaijani relations, Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan said during the government hour on Wednesday.
When asked by the MPs about the role of the meeting places of the representatives of Armenia and Turkey, the minister noted that this is not so important.
He did not rule out that in the future the above-mentioned meetings will be held both in Yerevan and Ankara.
“At the moment, I can only say that, unfortunately, no matter how much the process is said without preconditions, our Turkish partners, to a certain extent, synchronize it with the relations developing between Armenia and Azerbaijan. They make it part of their narrative,” Mirzoyan said.
They do not turn this into a precondition, but such an approach does not add constructiveness to the process and atmosphere, he added
However, discussions continue.
“But, unfortunately, there is no tangible progress yet. Armenia's position remains the same. Armenia wants and is ready to normalize relations and open borders. We would like to see the same from Turkey. I have already spoken about the Azerbaijani narrative and various gestures of the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry,” the Foreign Minister added.
Turkey has earlier closed the border as a sign of support for Azerbaijan.
