Armenia eyes extension of trade embargo against Turkish goods


YEREVAN, JANUARY 14, ARMENPRESS. The Government of Armenia is now inclined to further extend the ban on imports of Turkish-made products, an embargo that came into effect January 1 for a 6-month term.

“At this moment we are inclined to extend the ban on importing Turkish products, if no such geopolitical changes happen which would make it impossible,” Armenian Minister of Economy Vahan Kerobyan said. “This is done to protect local products,” he added.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
