Fule says EU's job not to judge history over Armenia claims

European Commission said Wednesday EU's job was not to judge history over Armenian allegations regarding the incidents of 1915.

In response to a question asked by extreme right winger members of the European Parliament whether or not EU recognized Armenian allegations, EU's enlargement commissioner Stefan Fule said EU's job was not to judge history. He said EU's job was to maintain peace.

Fule said EU was a project aimed at peace, democracy, stability and prosperity in the continent.

He said EU encourages Turkey and Armenia to remain committed to normalization process, recalling that the Union called on the two countries to ratify protocols in a reasonable time frame and implement them.

In October 2009, Turkey and Armenia signed two protocols in Switzerland to restore diplomatic ties and open their border.

Fule added that full normalization of Turkey-Armenia relations would contribute to security, stability and cooperation in South Caucasus. He said vision, courage and dialogue was needed to overcome past pains.
