Ball Is In Turkey’s Court: Serzh Sargsyan


Speaking to journalists today, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan
responded to yesterday’s statements made by Turkish officials.

"Unfortunately, our public familiarizes itself with those statements
from Azerbaijani websites, the authors of which, naturally, try
to misrepresent Turkish officials’ statements. However, there were
such statements. I think those statements are, in the first place,
addressed to an Azerbaijani audience," Sargsyan.

Sargsyan stated that, otherwise, a very strange for him situation

"If, in fact, the Turkish side will not ratify the Protocols, why did
they sign them? Perhaps they thought we wouldn’t show enough will and
would take a step back by withdrawing. Perhaps. In all circumstances,
the ball today is in their court and we have patience to wait for
the course of the developments. We have publicly announced our
steps and, without hesitation, we’ll move in that direction. If the
Turkish side ratifies the Protocols, we’ll go about the confirmed
schedule and continue the process. If they don’t ratify them, we
have nothing to constrain us, and we will do what we have announced,
" the president said.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
