By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the situation in the South Caucasus in a telephone conversation, Haber7 TV channel said today.

According to the information, Davutoglu's expected visit to Yerevan was also discussed.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will visit Armenia on December 12 to participate in a meeting of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organisation.

Turkey and Armenia have no diplomatic relations. The border has been closed since 1993. The reason was Armenia's claims for international recognition of the so-called 'genocide' and occupation of Azerbaijani territories by Armenian armed forces.
