Artak Zakaryan: Turkey's efforts cannot help resolve Karabakh conflict

 If Armenia were a country committed to the policy of 'revenge,' it would not initiate the process of Armenian-Turkish reconciliation, Artak Zakaryan, Head of the Armenian Parliament Committee for Foreign Affairs, told ArmInfo when commenting on Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu's latest statement claiming that Yerevan is allegedly committed to the policy of revenge in the relations with Ankara. 

"It is Turkey that takes no specific actions to normalize the relations with Armenia and torpedoes the process," Zakaryan said.

He recalled that the foreign policy course of Ankara and Davutoglu calls for "Zero problems with neighbors," while the problems with the neighbors have not been settled. Quite the contrary, now Turkey has even more problems with its neighbors. 

"Turkey, particularly, Davutoglu, should think over it and seek the cause in Ankara's policy," he said.  As for Davutoglu's statement suggesting that Ankara will do everything to resolve the Karabakh conflict, Zakaryan said: "Turkey's efforts will not help resolve the Karabakh conflict." 

Newly appointed Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said introducing the policy of the new government that Ankara's foreign policy priority in the Caucasus is settlement of the regional conflict, establishment of peace and reduction of tensions.

To this end, he said, Ankara will do everything to end "occupation of Azerbaijani lands and Nagorno Karabakh," as well as reduce tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan and establish peace in the region.  Davutoglu said that Ankara will continue "the steps towards normalization of relations with Armenia." 

He said Turkey does not anticipate historical revenge from Armenia, but search for the ways of cooperation and revealing justice in response to Ankara's "progressive offers".
