Analyst: Turkey would not rush with unblocking Armenia border

YEREVAN. –The opening of borders with Armenia can be costly for Turkey, Armenian political scientist Garik Keryan believes.

The analyst said this may damage Turkey's relations with Azerbaijan.

I remember when the Armenian-Turkish protocols were signed in Zurich in 2009, next day the nationalists burned the Turkish flag in Azerbaijan. Of course, this did not last long, and everything returned to normal, when it became clear that these protocols would not be ratified,” he added.

According to Keryan, Turkey is well aware of what it can lose, and therefore Ankara would not rush with the unblocking the border with Armenia in the near future.
