“If Turkey wants the settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict, it should not interfere in this process”, said Armenian foreign minister Edward Nalbandian during the meeting with a group of Turkish journalists, APA reports.

According to him, Turkey’s interference in Nagorno Karabakh issue does not contribute to the regulation process, but impedes it: “The world community including Armenia say that there is no connection between Nagorno Karabakh conflict and Turkey-Armenia rapprochement. The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs stated over and over again that these are two different processes with no links. Linking them threatens the prospects of both processes”.

Nalbandian also noted that official Ankara’s statements that Armenia must demonstrate good will in the regulation process of the conflict were groundless: “If there hadn’t been such will, so many meetings between Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents wouldn’t have been held”.

The foreign minister said the normalization of relations between Armenia and Turkey would positively impact on the entire region, including Azerbaijan: “All countries in the world, except Azerbaijan welcomed the normalization between the two countries. Azerbaijan cannot hide its emotions in this issue”.
