ArmInfo.Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Tanju Bilgic has issued a statement in response to a question regarding the European Parliament report on "EU-Armenia Relations."
The statement reads:
"The European Parliament's regular report, titled 'EU-Armenia Relations', dated 15 March 2023 once again includes unfounded allegations regarding TЃrkiye and 1915 events.
"These remarks which disregard historical facts and international legal norms are null and void.
"We call on the European Parliament to act in conformity with political ethics and international law, instead of reiterating such one-sided and baseless claims."
According to Point 30 of the European Parliament report on "EU-Armenia Relations", the European Parliament "Supports the normalisation of relations between Armenia and TЃrkiye in the interest of reconciliation, regional stability and security as well as socio-economic development and welcomes the progress achieved so far, including the resumption of flights between the two countries; calls for the speedy implementation of agreements reached by the special representatives; recalls that the previous attempt to normalise relations between Armenia and TЃrkiye through the signing of 2009 protocols failed because of TЃrkiye's unilateral support for Azerbaijan and its decision to make the opening of the border and establishment of diplomatic relations with Armenia conditional on the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict; calls on both sides to engage in the process in good faith and without preconditions and calls for the EU to actively support this process; expresses the hope that this may give impetus to the normalisation of relations in the South Caucasus region; encourages TЃrkiye once again to recognise the Armenian Genocide to pave the way for genuine reconciliation between the Turkish and Armenian peoples, and to fully respect its obligations to protect Armenian cultural heritage;"
