Yerevan's insincerity in the normalization process in the region is obvious, Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu told Haber Global.
The diplomat noted that the Armenian troops have not left the territory of Azerbaijan after two years. "Armenia's insincerity in the normalization process is obvious to everyone. They should know in Yerevan that Ankara has no secret plans from Baku. We are supporters of peace," Cavusoglu said.
According to Cavusoglu, the special envoys of Turkey and Armenia had four talks. "We are talking about the phased normalization of ties. After Azerbaijan's victory, Turkey stood for long-term peace in the South Caucasus. Steps in this direction continue. We are talking about the restoration of the air connection with Armenia and so on. Certain steps have been taken in the commercial sector," Anadolu cited the minister as saying.
He called "subjective" the “attempts to perceive the dialogue between Ankara and Yerevan as separate from the contacts between Armenia and Azerbaijan.”
"The key to establishing long-term peace in the South Caucasus is a large-scale peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Baku has presented its [respective] initiatives, to which Yerevan has not responded. A joint commission has been created, which should start the work. It is also about the Zangezur corridor. However, they are worried about it in Armenia. In Yerevan, they should decide whether they want peace," the Turkish FM concluded.
