Sea Economic Cooperation Council, and Comez’s partners. The parties
discussed issues related to the Armenian-Turkish relations. Manoian

the sides should be honest with themselves. But the facts indicate
that in Turkey, no sincere environment for such internal discussions
is yet in place. At the end of the meeting, Manoian, speaking to
journalists accompanying the Turkish politician, pointed to the role
of press in the normalization of the Armenian-Turkish relations,
emphasizing the need for responsible reporting.
