Ankara again links the problem of opening of the border to Armenia with the Karabakh conflict settlement

Reports that Turkey will open the border to
Armenia in September this year are baseless, but the issue may be involved in
the agenda within the frames of the processes which provide the possibility of
the global peace in the South Caucasus, press-secretary of Turkish Foreign
Ministry, Tanju Bildich, made such a statement, as official website of the
Turkish Foreign ministry reported. He also added that Armenia should display
will for resolving of problems with its neighbors, which will be crucial in
this matter.


 


Turkey's "Taraf" newspaper has reported that
preparations to open Alijan checkpoint on the border with Armenia in September
are underway.


 


According to the newspaper, Prime Minister Recep
Tayyip Erdogan had given official instructions to get through with preparations
to open Alijan checkpoint. By opening Alijan checkpoint, Turkey is aiming to normalize
its relations with the U.S. and Armenia. Following his condolences to Armenians
over 1915's events in April, this is now the second step taken by PM Erdogan to
normalize its relations with Armenia.


 


Official Yerevan has not yet responded at the
information.
