Gul Ties Armenia Turkish Relations to Karabagh Conflict

NEW YORK (Armenpress)–During their meeting held on the sidelines of the ongoing session of the UN General Assembly–Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian and Turkish Counterpart Abdullah Gul–officially announced that they "explored bilateral issues as well as regional concerns." The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet–however–reported that Gul told Oskanian the normalization of Turkish-Armenian relations–and its lifting of the blockade of Armenia are tied to a resolution of the Mountainous Karabagh conflict–and can only be discussed after such a resolution is found.
