/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "We have many times stated that we are ready to
establish relations with Turkey without any preconditions. By saying
this I mean opening of the border and establishment of diplomatic
and economic relations," Armenian Prime Minister Andranik Margaryan
stated in an interview published on the website of the Republican
Party headed by him. He voiced regret over the fact that Turkey sets
an inadmissible condition for Armenia. In his opinion, the opening
of the Armenian-Turkish border will offer the possibility to expand
regional cooperation.

"Relations with one more state will not do us any harm. I suppose our
economy will not suffer from it, we just should prepare our economic
policy in accord with the new demands," the RA PM said. At that he
remarked the products and their volume to be imported are unclear
yet. "Anyway the commodities that will be imported will not do harm
to our economy," he noted.
