No secret between Turkey & Armenia: Turkish PM
Turkey and Armenia are not taking actions behind the closed doors," the Turkish Prime Minister Receb Tayyib Erdogan said in an interview to Al-Jazeera television channel. Erdogan was commenting on the Turkey-Armenia relations, the Turkish Anadolu news agency reported with reference to Al-Jazeera.
Turkey and Armenia do not take any action behind the closed doors, Erdogan said.
Turkish and Armenian foreign ministers Ahmet Davutoglu and Edward Nalbandian signed the protocols Ankara-Yerevan in Zurich on October 10.
Diplomatic relations between Armenia and Turkey have been broken due to Armenia's claims of an alleged genocide, and its occupation of Azerbaijani lands. The border between them has been broken since 1993.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan lost all of Nagorno-Karabakh except for Shusha and Khojali in December 1991. In 1992-93, Armenian armed forces occupied Shusha, Khojali and 7 districts surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
The prime minister reiterated his loyalty to promises he sounded at the Azerbaijani parliament.
