Turkey mulls 'opening Armenia border' for NATO exercise

 

The Spokesman for the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), Burak Ozugergin, said Friday the opening of the Turkish-Armenian border temporarily for passage of equipment to be used in a NATO military exercise between September 11 and 17 was being evaluated discreetly.

Answering a question on the NATO military exercise, Ozugergin said that the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center (EADRCC) of NATO conducted a military exercise for extraordinary circumstances every year.

In 2010, the EADRCC military exercise will take place in Armenia with the participation of around 20 countries.

Turkey is expected to join the military exercise. The military exercise is designed to fight against natural disasters.

We are discreetly evaluating opening the Turkish-Armenian border temporarily in the event a request comes for the passage of equipment to be used in the military exercise, Ozugergin also said.
