/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The reality is that Turkey and Russia can’t be
strategic partners despite developing economic relations, an Armenian
professor said.

`The fact is that Ankara and Turkey disagree on the Karabakh issue,’
director of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the RA National
Academy of Sciences, professor Ruben Safrastyan told journalists
today.

`Russia is considering a possibility to build a nuclear power plant in
Turkey. The two countries try to operate the region jointly but they
still remain rivals,’ he said.
