SAFRASTYAN: TURKEY HAS NO TIME TO IMPROVE RELATIONS WITH ARMENIA
July 26, 2011
PanARMENIAN.Net – Turkey did not change its policy regarding Armenia,
and presently it has no time to settle relations with Yerevan, since
Erdogan’s government is more concerned about Middle East, according to
Ruben Safrastyan , Director of the Oriental Studies Institute at
Armenian National Academy of Sciences.
“Turkey is involved in events going on in Arab countries, namely
Syria, and is acting against authorities of these countries,”
Safrastyan told a press conference.
“Moreover, it is important for Turkey to solve Cyprus issue. It wants
to become a member of European Union, occupying a part of state-member
of this structure. The Turkish government tries to solve the Cyprus
problem without EU, in the frames of UN. If the problem is transmitted
to the UN, there Turkey will be supported by its allies U.S., England,
whereas in EU Greece and Cyprus will oppose Turkey,” turkologist said.
