July 18 2008
If Armenian-Turkish border is deblocked, the Karabakh conflict may
be resolved over a month, since in that case Azerbaijan will lose its
the only seeming privilege over Armenia, director of Hay Dut central
office and on political issues of ARF Dashnaktiutyun Kiro Manoyan
told ArmInfo correspondent.
He also added that Turkey cannot change its position regarding
the Karabakh conflict, nevertheless any positive changing in the
Armenian-Turkish relations will affect the Karabakh conflict settlement
process. "In that case Azerbaijan will understand that it lost. I
understand the anxiety that has already risen in Azerbaijan in this
context," – Manoyan said.
At the same time he said the border will be hardly deblocked since
it would be too big strep of Turkey towards Armenia. He thinks
that Turkey will make any positive step towards Armenia for its
"At the same time Armenia does not have an opportunity to make
compromises to Turkey as there is no compromise. The only compromise
of Armenia to Turkey could be refusal of the Armenian authorities from
the policy of the Armenian genocide recognition in all over the world,
but I absolutely rule out such a compromise", – Manoyan concluded.
