/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Turkey is attempting to build new kind of relations
with neighboring states, and such ambitions are not restricted to South
Caucasus only. As successor of Ottoman Empire, Turkey has serious
problems with almost all neighbors, Caucasus Institute Director,
political scientist Alexander Iskandaryan told a news conference in
Yerevan, answering a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter's question.

To resolve all those problems, Turkey is conducting a multi-vector
foreign policy, making statements "in favor of Azerbaijan on the one
hand, and in favor of Israel on the other." "Turkey seeks integration
to Middle East and South Caucasus simultaneously, that's why it
is conducting similar policy in both regions," Iskandaryan said,
commenting upon processes in Turkish-Israeli relations.
