Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Armenia has neither official nor behind-the- scene contacts with Turkey, Armenia's Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan told ArmInfo when asked to comment on Turkish media reports that Turkey is offering Armenia to cooperate under regional transport projects.
Kocharyan said that the countries have had no official contacts since they froze the process to ratify the protocols they signed in Zurich. He added that Turkey is giving the world community a different story of what actually happened and such reports are aimed at solving this task.
Earlier Hurriyet Daily News quoted Turkish diplomatic sources as saying that "Turkey has proposed that Armenia take part in its comprehensive regional transportation project linking Europe to Asia, if there are concrete developments in solving Nagorno-Karabakh dispute with Azerbaijan, reflecting a political will to build a win-win situation for all countries in the southern Caucasus in a post-conflict era."
