Expert at International Crisis Group Hug Pop has appreciated the
factor of Azerbaijan in Turkey-Armenia relations.
Pop has described Nagorno-Karabakh conflict as a time bomb,
Turkey-based Hurriyet newspaper reports.
Analyzing 12 June parliamentary elections in Turkey, ICG
representative in Turkey Hug Pop touched upon prospects of
Turkey-Armenia relations and the factor of Azerbaijan in this matter.
`Unfortunately, AKP did not go ahead with the efforts to resume ties
with Armenia. I think the protocols adopted in 2009 are perfect. This
was a good starting point.’
Pop said Turkey should not sacrifice rapprochement with Armenia to
fraternal ties with Azerbaijan.
