Vice speaker warns Turkey against meddling with Karabakh process

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian National Assembly’s vice speaker, press secretary of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) Eduard Sharmazanov commented on Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu’s statement urging for an end to “occupation” of 20% of Azerbaijani territory by Armenia, as it “seriously hampers the development of the South Caucasus region.”

“Some representatives of Turkish political elite are periodically guided by Goebbels principles, according to which people will believe what you say, if you repeatedly tell a lie.

“Turkey and Azerbaijan are the only countries hampering the development of the South Caucasus region, with the first imposing a blockade on Armenia over the past two decades, pursuing denial policy and constantly violating the international obligations assumed; the second disregarding OSCE Minsk Group’s efforts in peaceful settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

Meanwhile, Davutoğlu had better urge Turkish authorities to fulfill the international obligations, open the only closed border in Europe and keep out of Karabakh resolution, if he is truly concerned over development of the South Caucasus,” the vice speaker’s statement reads.
