ArmInfo. Turkey's initiative to create a Caucasian platform
of stability and security will be discussed during the Turkish
delegation's upcoming visit to Yerevan, Turkish Foreign Minister Ali
Babacan said, Radio Liberty reports with reference to the Associated
Press. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will leave for Istanbul,
Tuesday, to discuss this initiative.

Peoples of the Caucasus have single future, they also have common
history, Babacan said. "All of us must work to form this future",
he added. "When canons calm down, time for diplomacy comes. Now each
of the parties should display more equanimity to avoid aggravation of
the situation and disagreement. As the history shows, nobody benefits
from it, on the contrary, everyone loses something", Babacan said.

Turkey offers Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Russia to
sign a relevant agreement to ensure stability and security in the
Caucasus. The Turkish diplomatic delegation is expected to visit
Yerevan this week.
