Burak Ozugergin The Turkish FM has voiced his attitude to the
Armenian-Turkish relations.

"Armenian mass medias have strange logic: by signing the protocols with
Armenia, we must forget the Karabakh conflict. Why does the Armenian
side consider that by normalizing relations with Armenia, we should
not engage in other issues of the region and concentrate on it".

According to Turkish IHA, the statement came from spokesman for the
Turkish Foreign Ministry Burak Ozugergin at a news conference in
Ankara on April 29.

"We want the complex solution of all issues in our region. If the
relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan normalize along with the
Armenian-Turkish ties, the joint activity here will be intensive. We
want to reach this", she said.

Answering the questions about possible new contacts with Armenia,
Ozugergin said there are no such plans for the future.
