RECOGNITION OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE CORNER STONE OF ARMENIAN-TURKISH RELATIONS
YEREVAN, APRIL 21. ARMINFO. Recognition and condemnation of
the Armenian Genocide is the corner stone of Armenian-Turkish
relations, Armenia’s PM Andranik Margaryan said during today’s
Yerevan international conference on the 90th anniversary of the
Armenia is ready to establish natural relations with Turkey with no
preliminary conditions. But any such initiative ends in Turkey’s making
unacceptable terms. Meanwhile gradual Armenian-Turkish rapprochement
will certainly promote regional security and cooperation as well as
the resolution of the regional conflicts, says Margaryan.
Margaryan shares the opinion of European politicians that as a country
seeking EU membership Turkey should at least critically review its
history. Armenia wants to see Turkey relieved of the heavy burden of
denial and reconciled with its own history.
