Germany Minister of State welcomes the dialogue launched between Armenia and Turkey
Minister of State at the Federal Foreign Office of Germany Gernot Erler said during the joint press conference in Yerevan with the Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia, Karine Ghazinyan, that he welcomes the meetings of the Armenian and Azerbaijani Presidents targeted at the settlement of the Karabakh conflict, as well as the dialogue launched between Armenia and Turkey.
"We would be very glad if the Armenian-Turkish border opened under this economic crisis," Gernot Erler said, adding that it would provide additional opportunities for the development of the region, as a whole, reported Public Radio.
"Having closed borders in the 21st century is unnatural: there are many neighbors who have problems, but they solve those through dialogue. I thin that today Armenia and Turkey are en route to dialogue, and the rest of the problems will be solved after the border is opened and diplomatic relations are established," Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Karine Ghazinyan said.
