NO MATTER ABDULA GYUL BECOMES THE TURKISH PRESIDENT OR NOT, THIS WILL NOT INFLUENCE ARMENIAN-TURKISH RELATIONS, AN AMERICAN ANALYST THINKS
No matter Abdula Gyul becomes the Turkish president or not, this will
not influence Armenian-Turkish relations, American analyst Richard
Kirakosian said at a press conference on Tuesday.
According to him, even if A. Gyul wins in the second round of the
presidential election in Turkey, this will leave no mark on the
Armenian-Turkish relations. ‘The main problem of the Armenian-Turkish
relations is not in individuals but in the strategies of the two
countries’, he noted. R. Kirakosyan emphasized that Armenia’s main
challenge is that it’s surrounded by unpredictable countries. ‘For this
very reason Armenia must become a more powerful state in order to be
able withstand any challenges’, he said. R. Kirakosian also thinks
that if Turkey enters into EU, this process will have a positive
impact on Armenia.
