Armenia Turkey Relations Conditioned By Conflict Resolution

ANKARA(Itar-Tass)–Turkey has warned that it will not establish diplomatic relations with Armenia until the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

This follows a statement by Turkish President Suleyman Demirel–made Tuesday–when he returned to Turkey after his official visit to Georgia. "When Armenia became independent–we voiced our intention to be friends with it and to establish good relations. But Turkey cannot do that in conditions–when a quarter of the territory of Azerbaijan has been invaded–and 1.5 million people have become refugees."
