Armenia expects that the dialogue with Turkey will lead to the establishment of diplomatic relations and opening of border between the two countries, the spokesperson for Armenian Foreign Ministry Vahan Hunanyan said today ahead of the first meeting of Armenian and Turkish special envoys, picked up by their governments to negotiate the normalization of relations, slated for January 14 in the Russian capital Moscow.
In an interview with Armenpress news agency, Hunanyan stressed that the Armenian side believes that the Turkish government also shares the approach of starting the dialogue without preconditions.
According to the spokesman, Armenia’s expectations from the dialogue with Turkey are essentially the same as they were in the early 1990s.
“We expect that as a result of the process, diplomatic relations between Armenia and Turkey will be established and the border between the two countries, which was unilaterally closed by Turkey in the early 1990s, will be opened,” Hunanyan said.
