/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenia is very decisive about opening the border
with Turkey as we are unwilling to freeze the process, Defense Minister
Seyran Ohanyan said toady during the meeting with youth and diaspora
Border opening has economic benefits for Armenia, but progress can be
achieved only through peaceful methods, without any preconditions or
mutual concessions. "Possibility of unilateral concessions is ruled
out," Minister said.
Armenia should certainly develop ties with Turkey, but it must never
lay the sword, Mr. Ohanyan finds.
