Both parties should be guided by the principle’without any
pre-condition’ in the matter of normalization of the Armenian-Turkish
relations, or every party should offer its conditions, the leader
of the opposition Heritage party, deputy of the parliament Raffi
Hovannisian said at today’s press-conference in Hayastsk club.

He also added he does not accept an expression ‘football
diplomacy’. ‘One must not compare the Armenian-Turkish relations with
the American-Chinese ones, where sport was of great significance,
but there is asymmetry in our case’, – the leader of the Heritage
party said and added ‘there is no content’ in the policy conducted by
the Armenian authorities. Asked why the relevant expected document
was not signed by the foreign minister of Armenia and Turkey, Raffi
Hovannisian replied: "I had no information about possible signing of
such a document. But if the document which does not reflect the core of
the Armenian-Turkish relations will be signed, it means it contradicts
our national interests’. He also said Russia and Azerbaijan play a big
part in the relations between Armenia and Turkey. ‘In this direction
Armenian authorities should first of all protect the interests of
our state’, Raffi Hovannisian said.
