YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 2, NOYAN TAPAN. "In case of making a one-sided
and turning change in the course of Armenian-Turkish relations
Serzh Sargsyan, besides superficial and ambiguous judgements, should
point out to the deep motives of these changes." The Nor Zhamanakner
(New Times) party made such a statement on September 2. The party,
in particular, expressed the hope that President S. Sargsyan and
the other coalition forces exactly realize the lack of prospect in
Armenian-Turkish relations, "as in that sphere they rather come across
insuperable obstacles than outline positive factors."

Calling the RA authorities for refraining from short-sighted and
adventurous policy, NZP warned that otherwise Armenia can finally
tangle in the vortex of clash of regional challenges and mutually
contradicting interests and become an unprotected and vulnerable state.

"Before establishing good-neighborly relations with our immediate
neighbor be should take into consideration historic experience and
memory. Over the centuries Armenia has concluded rather successful
alliances with Assyria, Persia, Roman Empire, Russia, but all attempts
of establishing close political relations with Turkey as a rule have
had a bad outcome," the NZP statement read.
