Erdogan says Turkey behind Armenia protocols

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey was behind the protocols signed with Armenia last year.

Speaking on Turkey's NTV channel on Sunday, Erdogan said that "the protocols carry a statement. The protocols refer to 'facilitating peace for the region'."

When you refer to regional peace, you have to consider the problem between Azerbaijan and Armenia. We have to facilitate peace this time. The Azerbaijan-Armenia dispute was the reason for the closure of border gates, Erdogan said.

We have to solve the problem between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Unless we solve this problem, the Turkish Parliament will not say 'yes' to the protocols. We do not wish to see a negative decision by the Turkish Parliament. As such, we are preparing the necessary platform in the parliament, Erdogan said.

Touching on Iran's nuclear program, Erdogan said that Turkey had made all necessary warnings to Iran on the matter.

A country can erect a nuclear power plant for peaceful purposes. It is a natural right of any country to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. However, we do not wish to see nuclear arms in our region, Erdogan also said.
