2010-01-27 18:32

Georgia hails possible opening of Armenian-Turkish border and normalization of relations between Armenia and Turkey, stated yesterday Nika Gilauri, the PM of Georgia, in the course of joint briefing with his Armenian counterpart Tigran Sarkisyan after the 8th sitting of inter-governmental commission on economic cooperation - Novosti-Armenia.


"Settling of all the existing conflicts in the region is hailed," he said.

Armenian-Turkish relations complicated when Ankara supported Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Turkey also sharply reacted on the process of international recognition of genocide of Armenians in Ottoman Empire in 1915.

In 1993 the border between the two states was closed, on the initiative of Ankara.

On October 11th 2009 protocols on establishment of diplomatic relation and on development of bilateral relations were signed. These documents give a start to normalization of the relations between the countries.

Now the Turkish Foreign Ministry says every stage of the relations normalization process will consider interests of Azerbaijan.
