Spokesman to Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Burak Ozugergin said that normalization between Turkey and Armenia is not enough for normalization in Caucasus.

He said that stability in Caucasus cannot be established unless the problems related to Nagorno-Karabakh issue is solved.

Speaking to press, Ozugergin responded to a question about the ratification process of protocols and stated that Turkey's efforts are towards normalizing relations with Armenia. "But normalization is defined as a comprehensive normalization in the region," said he.

"Because, normalization of relations between Turkey and Armenia is not enough. It is clear that stability in Caucasus cannot be established unless the problems related to Nagorno-Karabakh issue are solved," said he. Reminding that protocols are conducted to Turkish Grand National Assembly, Ozugergin said that the will of Turkish Parliament will be decisive in the process of ratification.

Stating that Armenian administration also makes steps in accordance with the requirements of Armenian constitutional system, Ozugergin said that Armenian Constitutional Court will make its decision on protocols on the first half of January. "The process is being continued in both countries," said he.

Adding that there are different opinions in Armenia, Ozugergin said that Turkey considers conflicting statements of Armenian officials as moves towards decreasing the reaction of Armenian diaspora.

When journalists reminded that April 24 comes closer, Ozugergin said, "Turkey and Armenia did not initiate normalization process due to April 24 syndrome."

Stressing that evaluating Turkey-Armenia rapprochement as a process that is initiated to discard accusations of a third country would be unfortunate, Ozugergin said, "We expect third countries not to damage but to contribute the process."

Commenting on OSCE Minsk Group process, Ozugergin stressed that the process was fruitless since long years and said, "Obviously we made the right steps and afterwards Presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia met for five times. They will meet again in January. Turkey has changed the balances."
