/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenia’s position on protocols is quite explainable,
said Eduard Sharmazanov, spokesman for the ruling Republican Party
"Turkey has always used the language of preconditions. So, it’s logical
that it should be the first to ratify the protocols," he told a news
conference in Yerevan.
"Turkish parliament will announce the final decision on the protocols
on December 7, the day when Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Ergodan is
scheduled to meet U.S. President Barack Obama. If the decision is
negative the meeting will hardly take place, since the U.S. stand on
normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations is well-known," Sharmazanov
said, adding that Armenia will never make unilateral concessions.
He also emphasized that worldwide recognition of the Armenian Genocide
remains one of the RA’s foreign policy priorities.
