Secretary of the Republican Party of Armenia parliamentary group
Eduard Sharmazanov said that despite Turkey's aspiration to link the
Armenian-Turkish process to the Karabakh conflict settlement, the
world powers have repeatedly stated that these are different processes.

According to Mr. Sharmazanov, the international community should
make its conclusions after Turkey's contradictory statements,
as its position has served as a reason for Armenia to freeze the
Armenian-Turkish process.

"It should be noted that Turkey's statements are not of value, as
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared in Washington
about Turkey's willingness to continue the Armenian-Turkish
rapprochement without preconditions, but later he spoke about the
border's opening only after surrender of two regions around NKR,"
he said.
