"Armenia could give much to NATO," representative of the ruling
"Justice and Development" Party, Spokesman of Foreign Affairs
Committee of the Turkish Parliament Suat Kiniklioglu said in an
interview with Mediamax, commenting on the fact that NATO is the
only international format, where the cooperation between Turkey and
Armenia finds expression.

"Turkey attaches great importance to NATO. We are very glad that
Yerevan stands for intensification of relations with NATO. Turkey
would like to see all three countries of the South Caucasus as NATO
members. NATO proved its role in the past, and Armenia's greater
involvement would be only welcomed. We think that Armenia could give
much to NATO," the Turkish MP noted.

Suat Kiniklioglu expressed confidence that "Armenia's role in NATO
will strengthen in case of normalization of the Armenian-Turkish
relations" and noted that "Armenia's more significant role in NATO
is one of the objectives for which we should work in the direction
of normalization of relations."
