Turkish FM Babacan said that no decision was made regarding President
Abdullah Gul's visiting Yerevan.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said on Monday that no decision
was made regarding President Abdullah Gul's visiting Yerevan.

"If President Gul pays a visit to Yerevan, this will be a reflection
of Turkey's constructive efforts to contribute to peace and stability
in its region and international area, not because of external pressures
and impositions," Babacan told AA.

He said that they had not made a decision for Gul's visiting Yerevan
for the soccer game to be played between Turkey and Armenia.

Armenian President Serzh Sargsian recently invited President Gul to
Armenia to watch together the 2010 World Cup qualifying round game
between the two countries on September 6th.
