Armenian President says to come to Turkey for game
President Serzh Sargsian of Armenia will come to Turkey to watch a World Cup European qualifying group game between Turkish and Armenian national soccer teams.

President Sargsian told reporters before his departure for Moscow, "providing nothing extraordinary happens in these two days, I will go to Bursa and support my favourite team. I see no serious basis not to accept this invitation."

The match will be played in the northwestern Turkish province of Bursa on October 14.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul travelled to Yerevan in September 2008 to watch the first leg. His visit added momentum to the process which resulted in signing of two protocols envisaging establishment of diplomatic ties and development of bilateral relations between the two countries.

Meanwhile, Armenian national soccer team arrived in Turkey on Monday for their last game in World Cup qualifying group 5.

Armenian players and technical staff were greeted with flowers by Turkish Football Federation executives at International Yenisehir Airport in Bursa.

12 Armenian reporters also arrived in Bursa to cover the Wednesday's match.
