YEREVAN

The speech of the President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan at the House of
Representatives in Cyprus for the first time presents all the reasons
of failure of the Armenian-Turkish protocols. Political analyst Levon
Melik-Shahnazaryan said speaking to Armenpress that if till today the
RA President and different officials or political analysts were making
the main accent on forwarding of pre-conditions by Turkey after this
speech the political reasons of failure of the protocols have become
clear. "I was very glad to hear that the biggest threat is not the
forwarding of pre-conditions by Turkey but its gradual passing to
New Ottomanism policy," the political analyst said, adding that the
"New Ottomanism" is a dangerous phenomenon not only for us but for
the people that suffered the brutality of the policy carried out
during the Ottoman Empire.

Levon Melik-Shahnazaryan said today it is impossible to revive the
Armenian-Turkish relations as the Turkish authorities adopted "New
Ottomanism" policy.

He also said during the recent 6-7 months great determination has been
noticed in the speeches of Armenian President, which is very important.
