 By going on blockading the border to Armenia, Turkey hinders normalizing of the bilateral relations and exploiting of communications and transport ways with the European Union, Armenia's foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said at the meeting with foreign ministers of the EU Eastern Partnership countries, in Brussels, on 22 July. 


'Paradoxically, Turkey, which is striving to the EU, has shut down the border to the neighboring state, whereas a principle of free movement at the EU territory is one of the basic norms", - Nalbandian said. He welcomed appointment of Herbert Salber for the position of special representative of the EU for South Caucasus. 


To note, Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy for the European Union, and Stepan Fule, the European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, took part in the meeting.
