ArmInfo. The Turkish plan of attack on Armenia published the other day is connected with the Meghri Corridor, more precisely, the option of resolving the Karabakh conflict. A similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfo Minister of Defense of Armenia in 1999-2000. Lieutenant General Vagarshak Harutyunyan.
On June 17, the Swedish portal Nordic Monitor published information on the plans of the Turkish military military invasion of Armenia and Greece. The plan of attack on Armenia was drawn up on August 15, 2000, and on Greece on June 13, 2014. The leak of information occurred as a result of the error of the investigator conducting the court case of the attempted military coup in Turkey in July 2016.
The ex-minister believes that such a high degree of Ankara's interest in gaining direct ground communications with Azerbaijan could well prompt the Turkish General Staff to develop a military plan for resolving this strategic task. He recently considers the Turkish plan of attack on Armenia in this context. Harutyunyan is convinced that Turkey regarded Armenia as a hostile state from the very moment of gaining its last independence.
Accordingly, this country has always had aggressive military plans for neighboring Armenia. In this light, he also recalled that at the very height of the war in Artsakh in 1993, Ankara began to deploy its army on the border with Armenia with the obvious intention to attack. This scenario was prevented only as a result of the intervention of third countries.
, summed up Harutyunyan.
