Armenian Foreign Minister: There are no good news on normalization of  Armenian-Turkish Relations

ArmInfo.. Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan has no good news on the normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations.

Thus, on September 6 at a press conference in Yerevan, answering a  corresponding question, Mnatsakanyan, in particular, said: "As  regards the Armenian-Turkish relations, today we have a situation  where reality is not welcomed. Deviation from the Zurich Protocols,  economic blockade of Armenia , a biased position on the  Nagorno-Karabakh issue, not only the continuation of the policy of  denying the Armenian Genocide, but even the justification of this  act, which we encountered on April 24 of this year, is an incomplete  list of that disappointing reality, which we have today in the  bilateral relationship. " At the same time, Mnatsakanyan announced  Yerevan's readiness to normalize relations with Ankara.  However,  according to him, the two parties should participate in the dialogue;  it cannot be one-sided. "I can't give good news on this issue," the  Armenian Foreign Minister concluded.  It should be noted that 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  on the way to ratification. In this regard, by order of the third  President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan, the process of ratification of  the protocols in the Armenian parliament was frozen. In February  2015, they were completely recalled from parliament. In February  2018, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan announced the denunciation of  the Armenian-Turkish protocols.
