If Turkey goes on coming forward from the previous positions pretending for the mandate on Karabakh settlement, and putting forward pre-conditions, in that case one should not wait for any results from Turkish Foreign Minister , Ahmet Davutoglu's, visit to Armenia within the BSEC session, secretary of the ruling RPA faction, Hovanes Sahakyan, told Arminfo correspondent.
He also added that Turkey's stance in Karabakh conflict and the Armenian-Turkish relations has not changed and Davutoglu's last statements are evidence of that. He goes on conditioning normalization of bilateral relations with by the Karabakh settlement. "In this context, I do not have any special expectations from Turkish foreign minister's visit to Armenia", - Sahakyan said.
As for the protest actions which several political forces are going to hold during Davutoglu's visit to Armenia, Sahakyan said that Armenia is a democratic country where everybody have a right to express their position through various constitutional methods. One should not forget that Turkey is a country which made the Armenian genocide almost a century ago. "Therefore, all the emotions of the Armenian people regarding different representatives of Turkey are justified. This is my personal opinion", - Sahakyan concluded.
