/PanARMENIAN.Net/ On October 8-14, US Embassy in Turkey organized
"Two mountainsides" project, featuring a dialogue between Armenian an
Turkish youth representatives. Project participants met US Ambassador
to Turkey James Jeffrey in Ankara.

The Ambassador expressed his pleasure at the opportunity to meet
Armenian and Turkish students at such a historic moment. He especially
noted improving relations between the two countries. " There mustn’t
be closed borders between neighboring counters and we’re glad both
states’ authorities understand this. After USSR collapse many wars and
conflicts were stirred in the region. US, along with Europe are trying
to promote peaceful settlement. Despite RF-Georgian war of last year,
we’re sure it’s possible to establish peace, and recent developments
in RA-Turkey relations serve as a proof of this," he emphasized. In
reply to PanARMENIAN.Net. reporter’s question, James Jeffrey noted
that the opening should not be precipitated. "Opening of RA-Turkish
border is directly linked to Karabakh conflict. Balanced steps should
be undertaken for successful settlement of both issues."
