Moscow Stresses Support for Turkey-Armenia Ties to OSCE

MOSCOW (RIA Novosti)–Russia will continue to support Armenia and Turkey’s efforts to normalize their relations, Russia’s envoy to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said on Thursday.

“Russia is ready to continue to support the process of normalizing Armenian-Turkish relations, including through further implementation of mutually beneficial bilateral cooperation projects,” Anvar Azimov said.

He urged the parliaments of the two countries to ratify as soon as possible accords on establishing diplomatic relations and opening borders, signed on October 10 in Zurich. The agreement is expected to meet fierce opposition from nationalist parties in both countries.
