Turkey calls on Armenia to avoid harsh words

Spokesman for the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Burak Ozugergin said Thursday harsh expressions in Armenia would neither help Armenia nor the process.

The comment comes after Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan blamed Turkey for a failure in the protocol process.

Sargsyan claimed that Ankara is trying to gain time by putting forward preconditions.

Meeting NATO Secretary-General Rasmussen in Brussels, Sargsyan used phrases indirectly threatening Turkey and Azerbaijan.

The Armenian President said, “Armenia will never let Ankara to get involved in the process in finding the solution to the Upper Karabakh problem”.

Sargsyan said, “Armenian army is powerful enough to deal with the countries ten times bigger than Armenia”.

In response to a question on the normalization process between Turkey and Armenia, Ozugergin said that Turkey had a regional vision, one that focused on the normalization process and the solution of the Karabakh problem, Anadolu news agency said.

Expressions of domestic political actors in Armenia are getting harsh. Such harsh statements would neither help Armenia nor the process itself. We are using a language of peace. Aggressive statements from the other side are not compatible with our statements to establish an economic sphere based on stability and welfare, Ozugergin said.
