 The visit of the Armenian Foreign Minister to Turkey will not give any benefits to Armenia but will not have negative consequences either, Deputy Director of the Caucasus Institute Sergey Minasyan told ArmInfo on Tuesday.

He said that by attending the inauguration of Erdogan Nalbandyan is just trying to comply with diplomatic etiquette. "Of course, if Armenia refused to attend the ceremony, it would not be isolated from the region. Simply our authorities decided that they better attend it. I think the result in both cases would be the same – no result at all," Minasyan said.

He said that in Ankara Nalbandyan will try to find out if the Turkish authorities are planning to attend the events commemorating the 100th year of the Armenian Genocide.

According to Deputy Chairman of Heritage Party Armen Martirosyan, there may be some backstage talks between Armenia and Turkey, on the one hand, and Armenia and the great powers interested in better Armenian-Turkish relations, on the other.  

"Since we are not aware if such talks are being held or not, we cannot say if it is good or not that Armenia is attending the inauguration of the Turkish President. Perhaps, the reason why Nalbandyan is going to Ankara is that the great powers have promised Armenia to pressure Turkey into opening the Armenian-Turkish border," Martirosyan said.
