ArmInfo. Armenia canceled the Armenian-Turkish protocols on the normalization of relations (the Zurich protocols).
As the "Yerkir Media" TV channel informs, the press secretary of the RA President Vladimir Hakobyan informed that the relevant statement was made by the Armenian leader Serzh Sargsyan during the Security Council meeting held at the residence of the President of Armenia.
The Armenian-Turkish protocols were signed in Zurich on October 10, 2009. However, the protocols were never ratified by the parliaments of Armenia and Turkey, since Ankara constantly put forward preconditions for ratification. In this connection, the process of ratification of the protocols in the Armenian parliament was frozen by order of the President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan. And in February 2015 they were withdrawn from parliament.
In the second half of 2017, the President of Armenia from the rostrum of the UN General Assembly declared that Armenia will meet the spring of 2018 without the Armenian-Turkish protocols, since there is no progress in their implementation.
