Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said on Monday that no decision was made regarding President Abdullah Gul's visiting Yerevan, reported Worldbulletin.

"If President Gul pays a visit to Yerevan, this will be a reflection of Turkey's constructive efforts to contribute to peace and stability in its region and international area, not because of external pressures and impositions," Babacan told AA.

He said that they had not made a decision for Gul's visiting Yerevan for the soccer game to be played between Turkey and Armenia.

Armenian President Serzh Sargsian recently invited President Gul to Armenia to watch together the 2010 World Cup qualifying round game between the two countries on September 6th.
