Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu expressed Turkey's concerns about Armenian Constitutional Court's reasoned verdict on the protocols between Turkey and Armenia, to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the phone.
According to Foreign Ministry Officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, Davutoglu told his U.S. counterpart that the verdict violated the substance and essence of the protocols, which Turkey and Armenia initially agreed on for normalisation of relations.
Davutoglu told Clinton that elements like court decisions should not be allowed to effect the process. The two agreed to contact Switzerland, Russia and France to discuss steps to be taken in the process for normalisation of relations between Turkey and Armenia.
