YEREVAN (ArmRadio)— “First and foremost, the settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh issue is aimed at the determination of the final status of Nagorno-Karabakh through the legally binding expression of will of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh,” Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan said in response to Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s statement on Nagorno-Karabakh.

Cavusoglu told Thursday’s PACE session that Turkey would only normalize relations with Armenia once troops are withdrawn from “at least five regions of Nagorno-Karabakh.”

“Another attempt of the Foreign Minister of Turkey to distort the Nagorno-Karabakh negotiation process proves once again what we have been emphasized on numerous occasions that Turkey should be kept away from the settlement process as far as possible,” Kocharyan said in comments to “First News Service” of Public TV.

Referring to Cavusoglu’s statement, Kocharyan said “If Ankara really wanted to normalize relations with Armenia, it would have then ratified and implemented the Armenian-Turkish protocols signed back in 2009.”
