"I am sure that it is possible to re-establish trust relationships between Azerbaijani and Armenian peoples. I do not know when a concluding decision will be made on Nagorno-Karabakh issue, but it is very important that the peoples of the two countries can normally communicate with each other until the decision is made," said the EU Special Representative for South Caucasus, Peter Semneby, in his interview with PanARMENIAN.Net.
According to him, when the neighboring peoples do not communicate with each other, it brings to abnormal and dangerous situation. "In the best case, generations have grown up which do not know each other, and in worse case, an enemy vision has created. If it continues so, it will be more difficult to come to a common agreement. I can mention the same case in the relations between Turkey and Armenia. The situation is almost same, but it is possible to do more here. Turkey should be more open. As regards to Armenia, it can accept those Turkish proposals that do not touch upon important problems. Indeed it would be better and easier if Turkey would join the European Union because then Armenia will be a neighbor to the European country. However, Turkey's entrance to the EU is a very long process and nobody can say when it will conclude," the EU Special Representative said.
