Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu held a second meeting with
US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in the framework of the World
Nuclear Security Summit in Washington from April 12-13.

At a press conference following the meeting Davutoglu said that they
discussed Armenia-Turkey rapprochement, Iranian nuclear program,
as well as issues relating to the Caucasus.

"We are determined to continue the normalization with Armenia and have
informed about it both Armenian and American colleagues. I am going
to leave for Azerbaijan on Monday. I will visit also Iran during the
meeting," Davutoglu had said.

Referring to the visit to Baku he said: "In Azerbaijan I will discuss
with Ilham Aliyev the meetings that took place here [in Washington]
and the details related to them. Besides, we will consult our steps
to be taken in the future."

"Relations with Armenia are of great importance to us. But at the
same time we attach importance also to the settlement of the conflict
between Armenia and Azerbaijan. We want that all these processes
contribute to the establishment of stability and peace in the region,"
added Davutoglu.
