YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 1, NOYAN TAPAN. Representative of the ARF Bureau
Hrant Margarian considered as inadmissible the two initiated protocols
on the establishment of diplomatic relations between Armenia and
Turkey and the development of bilateral relations.

In his opinion, Armenia is being involved deeper in a big game, with
no guarantees that in two months Turkish parliament will approve the
agreement signed. Or else, according to him, another secret agreement
exists, by which the Karabakh problem shall also be solved within
two or six months. "I think it is rather naive to expect this state
to subordinate Azerbaijan's interests to relations with Armenia,"
H. Margarian said in an interview with Radio Liberty.

In his words, the document contains the conditions that Turkey laid
down in the past. "It is regrettable that our president allows himself
to sign a document, for which he has no right. No authorities have
the right to make the Genocide problem a subject for bargaining and
to issue statements at the expense of generations," the ARF Bureau
representative stated.

He noted that the ARF has prepared an action plan and in the next two
months it will do its best to inform the society about the agreement's
essence and the concealed issues.
