Turkish FM: Armenian Constitutional Court's decision conflicts with Ankara-Yerevan protocols
The Armenian Constitutional Court's decision is inconsistent with the Turkish-Armenian protocols, the Anadolu news agency reported today, citing the Turkish Foreign Ministry.
Turkish and Armenian foreign ministers Ahmet Davutoglu and Edward Nalbandian signed the Ankara-Yerevan protocols in Zurich Oct. 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.
Although many do not consider interrelated the normalization of Turkish-Armenian relations and the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh, Turkey-Armenia relations are directly dependent on resolving the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in Ankara in an interview after his visit to Moscow.
