/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Turkey’s policy has always been situation-dependent,
according to Eduard Abrahamyan, the leader of National Neoconservative
"After confrontation with the U.S. over Iraq, Ankara moved closer to
Tehran and labeled Israel as a terrorist organization. Nevertheless,
Washington did not yield to blackmail and approved intrusion of
Turkish troops into Northern Iraq. Then, Erdogan visited Israel and
signed an agreement on modernization of Turkish fighters and at the
same time slammed Iran’s nuclear program. Judging from the situation,
Ankara’s flirt with Tehran and Damascus can be described as a new
attempt to blackmail the West," he said.
Abrahamyan also reminded about Turkey’s Foreign Minister’s
recent statement on possible protraction of ratification of the
"Such scenario will cause displeasure of the international community.
Foreseeing negative reaction, Turkey initiates rapprochement with Iran
and Syria, what will allow a political haggling with the EU and U.S.
to make them soften position on the normalization of relations with
Armenia," he said.
