Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 12 / Trend R. Hafizoglu /
Despite the protocols have been found corresponding with the Armenian Constitution today, the Armenian Parliament is unlikely to ratify them, the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute at Johns Hopkins University director Svante Cornell said.
"Despite Armenia's Constitutional Court has confirmed today compliance of the Armenian-Turkish protocols with the Constitution, the Armenian parliament is unlikely to ratify these protocols," Cornell told Trend over phone from Sweden.
Armenia's Constitutional Court found the Armenian-Turkish protocols corresponding with the Constitution, "News-Armenia" agency reported.
Armenia's Constitutional Court launched its consideration of the protocols on Tuesday morning.
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian spoke as official representative of the Armenian President during consideration of the case.
The case was considered in a written procedural order on the basis of the documents submitted to the court.
Turkish and Armenian foreign ministers Ahmet Davutoglu and Edward Nalbandian signed the Ankara-Yerevan protocols on normalization relations between two countries in Zurich on Oct. 10, 2009.
Diplomatic relations between Armenia and Turkey were broken due to Armenian claims of an alleged genocide and its occupation of Azerbaijani lands. Their border closed in 1993.
Cornell said if you carefully observe the recent events, it becomes clear that there is no political activity in the region.
He said much depends now on the actions of the Turkish Parliament.
"I think that Armenia will wait for Turkish actions in ratification of the protocols in its Parliament," Cornell said.
Another factor of the development of events concerning the Armenian-Turkish protocols will influence the position of Armenia, Russia and the United States, the expert said.
