Yerevan, 7 November: Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanyan said in
Yerevan today that Armenia had positively responded to a proposal from
the Polish Foreign Ministry which said that it was ready to represent
Armenia’s interests in Turkey and Turkey’s interests in Armenia.
Answering a question from Mediamax in Yerevan today, Oskanyan said
that the Polish Foreign Ministry had put forward the proposal about
two months earlier. He also said that Turkey had not yet responded
to the Polish Foreign Ministry’s proposal.
The Armenian foreign minister recalled that Armenia is the only member
country of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization (BSECO)
which has its representative office in Istanbul.
"We did it specially in order to have an Armenian diplomat in Turkey
through whom we could maintain contact," Oskanyan noted.
