Armenia doubts Ankara, Baku have peaceful intentions towards Yerevan

Armenian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Anna Naghdalyan has commented on the remarks of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavuşoğlu who said both Ankara and Baku are ready to take steps aimed at normalizing relations with Yerevan if peace in Nagorno-Karabakh lasts.

"I would not like to comment on the statements from the Turkish-Azerbaijani leadership, which are not consolidated by actions," Naghdalyan told PanARMENIAN.Net on Friday, January 22.

"Moreover, they contradict each other. The Turkish-Azerbaijani military exercises carried out near the Armenian border in violation of relevant OSCE commitments do not prove that the Turkish-Azerbaijani leadership has peaceful intentions towards Armenia."

According to the spokeswoman, the cessation of hostile actions against Armenia, meanwhile, could create conditions for building trust in the region.
