/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The closed border and absence of relations between
Armenia and Turkey conflict with the logic of the 21st century,
Armenia's Ambassador to the EU said.

"Yesterday statement issued by the Armenian and Turkish Foreign
Ministries is the regular move in the framework of football diplomacy
and it's hard to predict its consequences. The most important thing is
that Armenia should maintain its dignity while normalizing relations
with Turkey," Avet Adonts said.

"Turkey's any attempt to impose terms on Yerevan will frustrate the
ongoing process," he said.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Monday that Turkey would
"guard" Azerbaijan's interest during its reconciliation with Armenia.

"Officials can make different statements but the fact is that there
is a document, which outlines the agreements achieved before," the
Armenian diplomat commented.
