Turkish officials' activities are aimed at not only internal,
domestic audiences, told journalists member of ARF Dashnaktsutyun,
Hrayr Karapetyan. He described Armenian foreign policy as "passive
and unclear". When asked about Edward Nalbandyan's statement that
Armenia is not under anyone's pressure, Hrayr Karapetyan said:
"Foreign Minister's statements are sent to opposition, in particular,
to ARFD, instead of being designed to neutralize the statements made
by Turkish officials. Our Foreign Ministry's actions are not in tune
with the situation."

Hrayr Karapetyan expressed regret that Turkish declarations come
gradually true. He pointed that Turkey openly seeks to chair OSCE
Minsk Group to participate in settlement of Karabakh.

"Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister already participates in OSCE Minsk
Group discussions," he said noting that Turkey goes by preconditions
being led by third party's claims. Hrayr Karapetyan said that
governmental forces involved in normalization relations with Turkey and
issue of Karabakh should focus and go by strategy of national security.
